Evaluating the normal distribution approximation. a, b Cumulative distributions of absolute amplitudes for the observed (whitened) waveform in the noise window (black) and for the normal distribution (green). c, d Cumulative distribution of \(|({a}_{i,j}^{eq}\left(\tau \right)-{a}_{i}^{ave}\left(\tau \right))/{\sigma }_{i}^{a}(\tau )|\) for different values of \(\tau\) (from blue to red) and for the normal distribution (green). The results for the largest earthquake at Station E.STHM are shown in a and c; those for the deepest earthquake of the smallest (M2.0) magnitude at Station E.STHM are shown in b and d
