Magnitude 5.3 Earthquake of Alaqahdari-ye Kiran wa Munjan, Afghanistan 2014-09-13

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

a) 8km (5mi) WSW of `Alaqahdari-ye Kiran wa Munjan, Afghanistan

b) 96km (60mi) S of Jarm, Afghanistan

c) 97km (60mi) SE of Farkhar, Afghanistan

106km (66mi) SW of Ashkasham, Afghanistan

e) 214km (133mi) NE of Kabul, Afghanistan

Location Uncertainty: 
5.3 mb
± 0.04
36.004°N, 70.689°E
97.2 km
± 4.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
125.0 km (1.12°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.87 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)
