91.3km (56.7mi)

Region : Chitral, Pakistan

Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake of Chitral, Pakistan 2014-09-17

Directions and Distances :Directions and Distances from Geographical Reference in Close Proximity Which can be effected by Location Uncertainty

a) 30km (19mi) NW of Chitral, Pakistan

b) 68km (42mi) S of Ashkasham, Afghanistan

c) 73km (45mi) S of Ishkashim, Tajikistan

d) 88km (55mi) NW of Tal, Pakistan

e) 410km (255mi) NE of Islamabad, Pakistan

Location Uncertainty: 
4.7 mb
± 0.13
36.067°N, 71.583°E
91.3 km
± 8.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
148.2 km (1.33°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.07 sec

Azimuthal Gap4

1Number of phase Applied: 
In determining location of hypocenter, applied number of observations on P waves and S waves. The greater the more accurate prediction of EQ.

2Minimum Distance:
 Horizontal distance of nearest Station measured in Km from epicenter. The smaller the more accuracy in prediction of depth of EQ.

3Travel Time Residual:
 A way of measurement of fit of arrival time observed to arrival time predicted for particular location. The smaller the better fit of data.

4Azimuthal Gap: 
Expressed in degree; the smaller the smaller the error in horizontal positioning of EQ. Large uncertainty is considered when exceeds 180° (both depth and location)
