Locating an Epicenter: Japan

  1. 1. Locating an Epicenter
  2. 2. This Earthquake's Seismograms are Below Use these three seismograms to estimate the S-P time interval for each of the recording stations. Record your measurement for the S-P interval in the box below each seismogram. Pusan Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds Tokyo Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds
  3. 3. Akita Seismic Station S-P Interval = seconds Find the distance using the lag time vs. distance graph.
