31.2km (19.4mi)

Region :  Farkhar, Afghanistan

Magnitude 4.5 Earthquake of Farkhar, Afghanistan 2014-08-27

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

a)  14km (9mi) S of Farkhar, Afghanistan

b)  42km (26mi) SE of Taloqan, Afghanistan

c)  70km (43mi) ESE of Khanabad, Afghanistan

75km (47mi) S of Rustaq, Afghanistan

Location Uncertainty: 
5.2 mb
± 0.04
36.445°N, 69.849°E
31.2 km
± 5.1 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
99.6 km (0.90°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.92 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)
