Magnitude 5.3 Earthquake of Madang, Papua New Guinea 2014-09-08

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

a) 108km (67mi) E of Madang, Papua New Guinea

b) 154km (96mi) N of Lae, Papua New Guinea

c) 173km (107mi) ENE of Goroka, Papua New Guinea

d) 206km (128mi) N of Bulolo, Papua New Guinea

e) 456km (283mi) N of Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

Location Uncertainty: 
5.3 mb
± 0.04
5.338°S, 146.771°E
229.8 km
± 4.2 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
451.7 km (4.06°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.05 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)
