For each seismogram you would have a circle of possible positions: These would intercept at 2 different locations, so you would have two possible epicentral points, and would need some other indication to identify which of the two was the correct one.

Two locations = two dimensions of analysis.

Therefore, you may be able to estimate location, but not depth.
