Magnitude 4.9 Earthquake of Hofn, Iceland 2014-10-02

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

a)  123km (76mi) WNW of Hofn, Iceland

b)  127km (79mi) S of Akureyri, Iceland

c)  209km (130mi) ENE of Reykjavik, Iceland

210km (130mi) ENE of Kopavogur, Iceland

e)  213km (132mi) ENE of Hafnarfjordur, Iceland

Location Uncertainty: 
  1. 4.9 mb
± 0.04
64.552°N, 17.675°W
8.8 km
± 4.2 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
176.3 km (1.58°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.97 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)
