You are a scientist working at the national office of the Earthquake Data Control Center. You are able to receive information from several scientific monitoring stations around the world about earthquake activity. A large earthquake has recently occurred. Your task will be to analyze the data that comes to you from various locations around the globe, and then to determine the exact location of this earthquake.

On September 29, 2009, seismic monitoring stations around the Pacific Rim recorded seismograms of a large earthquake. Three seismic stations have sent you their data: Forrest in Australia, Tegucigalpa in Honduras, and Oita Nakatsue in Japan. Each seismic station has actually sent you three seismograms to help you analyze this earthquake. These seismograms represent motion in the east-west direction, the north-south direction, and in the vertical direction. Recording seismograms to represent motion in three directions is quite standard since the originating earthquake can send out seismic waves in many directions. With seismograms for three different directions we can be reasonably sure that at least one, if not more, of those directions will result in a good seismic wave trace as the earthquake passes us by.

Your task is to analyze the data that you have been sent and then to determine the origin of the earthquake. Below is the data that you received from the three seismic monitoring stations:
