To locate the epicenter of the earthquake seismologist use the distance data from 3 different recording station and then draw circles that distance awaty from the seismic stations the point where the three circles intersect is the epicenter of the earthquake what do you call this method of detemining the epicenter?


The distance between the beginning of the first P wave and the first S wave tells you how many seconds the waves are apart. This number will be used to tell you how far your seismograph is from the epicenter of the earthquake.

The method which is used to identify the location of the epicenter through the distance of 3 different recording station is called the TRIANGULATION METHOD.

Do you know the answer?
