Magnitude 2.8 Earthquake of Plummer, Idaho 2014-10-15

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

 a)  12km (7mi) S of Plummer, Idaho

 b)    50km (31mi) S of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho

 c)  54km (34mi) SSE of Opportunity, Washington

 d)  55km (34mi) S of Post Falls, Idaho

  1.  e)  374km (232mi) WNW of Helena, Montana

Location Uncertainty: 
2.8 Md
± 0.20
47.225°N, 116.870°W
± 4.9 km
0.0 km
± 31.6 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
140.0 km (1.26°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.25 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)
