Magnitude 5.1 Earthquake of Bamboo Flat, India 2015-04-09

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

a) 264km (164mi) N of Bamboo Flat, India

b) 267km (166mi) N of Port Blair, India

c) 361km (224mi) SW of Pathein, Burma

d) 364km (226mi) SW of Mawlamyinegyunn, Burma

Location Uncertainty: 
5.1 mb
± 0.1
14.087°N 92.832°E
± 7.4 km
25.8 km
± 4.6
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
269.17 km (2.42°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.78 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)
