Region : Te Anau, New Zealand

Magnitude 4.7 Earthquake of Te Anau, New Zealand 2014-10-19

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

a)  43km (27mi) NNW of Te Anau, New Zealand

b)  89km (55mi) W of Queenstown, New Zealand

c)  161km (100mi) NW of Gore, New Zealand

163km (101mi) NNW of Invercargill, New Zealand

e)  722km (449mi) SW of Wellington, New Zealand

Location Uncertainty: 
4.7 mb
± 0.12
45.046°S, 167.523°E
131.9 km
± 3.3 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
58.9 km (0.53°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.82 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)
