Mean square residual = 3.20943

Dist is the distance in degrees from the array to the event. There are approximately 111km/deg. Seaz is the 'station to event azimuth': an angular distance measurement in degrees from the station to the earthquake. Esaz is the 'event to station azimuth': an angular distance measurement in degrees from the earthquake to the station.

ANZA (2198 km)
dist ~19.8 deg.
seaz ~136.5 deg

KNET(13220 km)
dist ~119.1 deg.
seaz ~357.0 deg

The first 6 hours of data recorded at ANZA station PFO show that after the mainshock there were no large aftershocks recorded by ANZA. This is not unexpected because of the distance (19.8 deg) from the array to the source.
