Magnitude 5.2 Earthquake of Chichi-shima, Japan 2014-09-21

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

a) 270km (168mi) WNW of Chichi-shima, Japan

b) 733km (455mi) SSE of Shingu, Japan

c) 750km (466mi) S of Shimoda, Japan

d) 752km (467mi) S of Oyama, Japan

e) 861km (535mi) S of Tokyo, Japan

Location Uncertainty: 
5.2 mb
± 0.03
27.925°N, 139.648°E
491.1 km
± 6.4 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
267.1 km (2.40°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.68 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)
