    1. 2.636°N 125.524°E

    Depth : Depth of starting Rupture

    163.8km (101.8mi)

    Region : Bitung, Indonesia

    Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake of Bitung, Indonesia 2014-10-28

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

    a) 137km (85mi) NNE of Bitung, Indonesia

    b) 147km (91mi) NNE of Manado, Indonesia

    c)  162km (101mi) NNE of Tondano, Indonesia

    162km (101mi) NNE of Tomohon, Indonesia

    e)  1120km (696mi) WSW of Koror Town, Palau

    Location Uncertainty: 
    4.4 mb
    ± 0.22
    2.636°N, 125.524°E
    163.8 km
    ± 10.9 km
    Number of Phase Applied1

    Minimum Distance2
    290.8 km (2.61°)

    Travel Time Residual3
    1.32 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)
