Region : Methoni, Greece

Magnitude 4.8 Earthquake of Methoni, Greece 2014-10-12

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

a)  138km (86mi) S of Methoni, Greece

b)  169km (105mi) SSW of Kalamata, Greece

c)  182km (113mi) SSW of Sparta, Greece

220km (137mi) W of Chania, Greece

e)  327km (203mi) SW of Athens, Greece

Location Uncertainty: 
4.8 mb
± 0.10
35.574°N, 21.590°E--
30.5 km
± 6.4 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
180.8 km (1.62°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.00 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)
