Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

14.688°S 75.195°W

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

65.9km (40.9mi)

Region : Palpa, Peru

Magnitude 4.8 Earthquake of Palpa, Peru 2014-09-07

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

a)  17km (11mi) S of Palpa, Peru

b)  30km (19mi) WNW of Nazca, Peru

c)  58km (36mi) N of Minas de Marcona, Peru

78km (48mi) SE of Santiago, Peru

e)  353km (219mi) SE of Lima, Peru

Location Uncertainty: 
4.8 mb
± 0.10
14.688°S, 75.195°W
65.9 km
± 6.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
348.1 km (3.13°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.61 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)
