Magnitude 7.5 Earthquake of Lamjung, Nepal 2015-04-25

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

a) 35km (22mi) E of Lamjung, Nepal

b) 60km (37mi) NNE of Bharatpur, Nepal

c) 75km (47mi) E of Pokhara, Nepal

d) 76km (47mi) NW of Kirtipur, Nepal

± 4.0
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
1252.67 km (11.25°)

Travel Time Residual3
1.08 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)
