Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

13.5km (8.4mi)

Region : Goldfield, Nevada

Magnitude 3.3 Earthquake of Goldfield, Nevada 2014-10-13

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

a)  53km (33mi) S of Goldfield, Nevada

b)  165km (103mi) NW of Pahrump, Nevada

c)  181km (112mi) N of Ridgecrest, California

d)  192km (119mi) ENE of Exeter, California

Location Uncertainty: 
3.3 ml
± 0.28
37.234°N, 117.324°W
± 1.3 km
13.5 km
± 1.6 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
26.2 km (0.24°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.1871 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)
