Scientist find the difference between the arrival times of the P and S waves at each of the three stations
The time difference is used to determine the distance of the epicenter from each station. The greater the difference in time, the farther away the epicenter is.
A circle is drawn around each station, with a radius corresponding to the epicenters distance from that station. The point where the 3 circles meet is the epicenter
