Magnitude 2.6 Earthquake of Anthony, Kansas 2014-10-28

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

a)  15km (9mi) SE of Anthony, Kansas

b)  71km (44mi) N of Enid, Oklahoma

c)  77km (48mi) SW of Haysville, Kansas

79km (49mi) W of Arkansas City, Kansas

Location Uncertainty: 
2.6 mb_lg
± 0.11
37.041°N, 97.930°W
5.0 km
± 2.0 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
9.1 km (0.08°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.55 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)
