Earthquake data:

Location : Position of Epicenter 

24.686°N 122.156°E

Depth : Depth of starting Rupture 

90.4km (56.2mi)

Region : Su'ao, Taiwan

Magnitude 4.3 Earthquake of Su'ao, Taiwan 2014-10-26

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

a)  32km (20mi) ENE of Su'ao, Taiwan

b)  41km (25mi) E of Yilan, Taiwan

c)   64km (40mi) SE of Keelung, Taiwan

74km (46mi) ESE of Taipei, Taiwan

e)   859km (534mi) ENE of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

Location Uncertainty: 
4.3 mb
± 0.14
24.686°N, 122.156°E
90.4 km
± 6.2 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
73.8 km (0.66°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.77 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)
