Region : Calama, Chile

Magnitude 4.5 Earthquake of Calama, Chile 2014-10-12

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

a)  57km (35mi) NNE of Calama, Chile

b)  154km (96mi) E of Tocopilla, Chile

c)  247km (153mi) SE of Iquique, Chile

253km (157mi) NE of Antofagasta, Chile

Location Uncertainty: 
4.5 mb
± 0.31
21.995°S, 68.700°W
135.2 km
± 7.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
60.1 km (0.54°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.89 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)
