Region : Currant, Nevada
Magnitude 3.7 Earthquake of Currant, Nevada 2015-05-04

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

a) 42km (26mi) NNW of Currant, Nevada

b) 182km (113mi) S of Spring Creek, Nevada

c) 193km (120mi) S of Elko, Nevada

d) 276km (171mi) NW of Cedar City, Utah

e) 353km (219mi) E of Carson City, Nevada

Location Uncertainty: 
3.7 ml
± 0.3
39.087°N 115.676°W
± 1.7 km
0.0 km
± 0.2
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
82.60 km (0.74°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.2143 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)
