Region : Warm Springs, Nevada

Magnitude 3.0 Earthquake of Warm Springs, Nevada 2014-10-21

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

a) 12km (7mi) NNW of Warm Springs, Nevada

b) 234km (145mi) N of Pahrump, Nevada

c) 259km (161mi) NNW of North Las Vegas, Nevada

d) 259km (161mi) NNW of Summerlin South, Nevada

e) 305km (190mi) ESE of Carson City, Nevada

Location Uncertainty: 
3.0 ml
± 0.14
38.287°N, 116.437°W
± 6.0 km
0.0 km
± 6.5 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
72.7 km (0.65°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.1943 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)
