7.5km (4.6mi)

Region : Solvang, California

Magnitude 2.6 Earthquake of Solvang, California 2014-10-23

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

a)  20km (12mi) S of Solvang, California

b)  28km (17mi) W of Isla Vista, California

c)  31km (19mi) W of Goleta, California

37km (23mi) SE of Lompoc, California

Location Uncertainty: 
2.6 ml
± 0.15
34.409°N, 120.167°W
± 0.4 km
7.5 km
± 2.0 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
14.0 km (0.13°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.33 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)
