GeoNet combines magnitudes into a summary magnitude, M, which consists of a weighted average of the individual magnitudes and attempts to be a best possible compromise between all magnitudes for a range of earthquake sizes.
Summary magnitude for GeoNet is then defined as:
Where MLv is local magnitude calculated on the vertical component and Mw(mB) is a Mw estimation based of mB by Bormann and Saul (2008).
Map showing stations with picks used to locate the earthquake. Stations with picks
that have a zero weight in the solution are shown as small grey circles. Those with a higher weight are
shown as larger circles. The quake is shown by the largest circle.
