Magnitude 6.3 Earthquake of Ramechhap, Nepal 2015-05-12

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

a) 33km (21mi) NNE of Ramechhap, Nepal

b) 63km (39mi) E of Banepa, Nepal

c) 64km (40mi) E of Panaoti, Nepal

d) 83km (52mi) E of Kathmandu, Nepal

± 1.8
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
74.03 km (0.67°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.93 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)
