Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake of `Alaqahdari-ye Kiran wa Munjan, Afghanistan 2015-05-10

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

a) 46km (29mi) NNW of `Alaqahdari-ye Kiran wa Munjan, Afghanistan

b) 53km (33mi) SSW of Jarm, Afghanistan

c) 67km (42mi) ESE of Farkhar, Afghanistan

d) 77km (48mi) S of Fayzabad, Afghanistan

e) 246km (153mi) NNE of Kabul, Afghanistan

Location Uncertainty: 
4.4 mb
± 0.2
36.422°N 70.588°E
± 7.2 km
154.3 km
± 10.7
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
78.03 km (0.70°)

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)
