Magnitude 3.9 Earthquake of Ban Phlu Nai (1), Thailand 2015-05-06

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

a) 10km (6mi) SE of Ban Phlu Nai (1), Thailand

b) 28km (17mi) E of Ban Ratsada, Thailand

c) 29km (18mi) E of Phuket, Thailand

d) 29km (18mi) E of Ban Talat Yai, Thailand

e) 621km (386mi) NNW of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Location Uncertainty: 
3.9 mb
± 0.2
7.877°N 98.663°E
± 8.5 km
15.0 km
± 3.8
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
348.98 km (3.13°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.50 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)
