Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

40.824°N 80.203°E

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

16.9km (10.5mi)

Region : Aksu, China

Magnitude 4.1 Earthquake of Aksu, China 2014-10-13

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

a)  33km (21mi) S of Aksu, China

b)  96km (60mi) WNW of Aral, China

c)  238km (148mi) SE of Karakol, Kyrgyzstan

248km (154mi) SE of Kyzyl-Suu, Kyrgyzstan

e)  518km (322mi) ESE of Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan

Location Uncertainty: 
4.1 mb
± 0.19
40.824°N, 80.203°E--
16.9 km
± 4.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
400.9 km (3.60°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.87 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)
