According to the Department, which belongs to the Agriculture Ministry, the earthquakeeIUs epicentre was located in the Prastio Kellakiou region of Limassol with a focal depth of 15 kilometres.
This was done as an effort to reduce the errors in the hypocentral locations determined by ISC and NEIC, since this method permits a better constrained estimate of the focal depth when a considerable number of pP phases are included.
The new system achieves focusing precision of less than 1/3 of the focal depth of the objective by combining Nikon's PFS technology with the extremely accurate Z-axis control of the TE2000E2.
