Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

47.655°N 121.965°W

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

17.2km (10.7mi)

Region : Ames Lake, Washington

Magnitude 2.9 Earthquake of Ames Lake, Washington 2014-10-13

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

a)  2km (1mi) N of Ames Lake, Washington

b)  5km (3mi) ESE of Union Hill-Novelty Hill, Washington

c)  8km (5mi) E of Sammamish, Washington

11km (7mi) E of Redmond, Washington

e)  98km (61mi) NE of Olympia, Washington

Location Uncertainty: 
2.9 Ml
± 0.20
47.655°N, 121.965°W± 0.7 km
17.2 km
± 1.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
10.0 km (0.09°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.39 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)
