Magnitude 3.3 Earthquake of Anthony, Kansas 2014-10-22

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

a)  17km (11mi) SE of Anthony, Kansas

b)  71km (44mi) N of Enid, Oklahoma

c)  75km (47mi) SW of Haysville, Kansas

76km (47mi) W of Arkansas City, Kansas

Location Uncertainty: 
3.3 mb_lg
± 0.05
37.036°N, 97.894°W
5.3 km
± 6.8 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
8.2 km (0.07°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.60 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)
