19.3km (12.0mi)

Region : Nishinoomote, Japan

Magnitude 4.8 Earthquake of Nishinoomote, Japan 2014-09-14

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

a) 90km (56mi) S of Nishinoomote, Japan

b) 152km (94mi) SSE of Ibusuki, Japan

c) 164km (102mi) S of Kanoya, Japan

d) 167km (104mi) SSE of Makurazaki, Japan

e) 930km (578mi) SSE of Seoul, South Korea

Location Uncertainty: 
4.8 mb
± 0.06
29.920°N, 131.114°E
19.3 km
± 4.5 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
187.3 km (1.68°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.67 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)
