The San Andreas Fault

"Just recently in science, we have been learning out tectonic plates and faults and in which the famous San Andreas fault was mentioned. From this, I have created a small theory about what is San Andreas and what happened to the state."

 

 

 

The presence of the San Andreas fault was brought dramatically to world attention on April 18, 1906, when sudden displacement along the fault produced the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. This earthquake, however, was but one of many that have resulted from episodic displacement along the fault throughout its life of about 15-20 million years.

 

Scientists have learned that the Earth's crust is fractured into a series of "plates" that have been moving very slowly over the Earth's surface for millions of years. Two of these moving plates meet in western California; the boundary between them is the San Andreas fault. The Pacific Plate (on the west) moves northwestward relative to the North American Plate (on the east), causing earthquakes along the fault. The San Andreas is the "master" fault of an intricate fault network that cuts through rocks of the California coastal region. The entire San Andreas fault system is more than 800 miles long and extends to depths of at least 10 miles within the Earth. In detail, the fault is a complex zone of crushed and broken rock from a few hundred feet to a mile wide. Many smaller faults branch from and join the San Andreas fault zone. Almost any road cut in the zone shows a myriad of small fractures, fault gouge (pulverized rock), and a few solid pieces of rock.

 

 

Earthquakes Along the Fault

 

Literally thousands of small earthquakes occur in California each year, providing scientists with clear indications of places where faults cut the Earth's crust. The largest historical earthquakes that occurred along the San Andreas fault were those in 1857 and 1906. The earthquake of January 9, 1857, in southern California apparently was about the same magnitude as the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. According to newspaper accounts, ground movement in both cases was roughly the same type. An account of the 1857 earthquake describes a sheep corral cut by the fault that was changed from a circle to an "S"-shape--movement clearly representative of right-lateral strike-slip. Studies of offset stream channels indicate that as much as 29 feet of movement occurred in 1857.

The San Francisco earthquake and fire of April 18, 1906, took about 700 lives and caused millions of dollars worth of damage in California from Eureka southward to Salinas and beyond. The earthquake was felt as far away as Oregon and central Nevada.

 

 

 

When Could the Next Large Earthquake Occur Along the San Andreas Fault?

 

 

Along the Earth's plate boundaries, such as the San Andreas fault, segments exist where no large earthquakes have occurred for long intervals of time. Scientists term these segments "seismic gaps" and, in general, have been successful in forecasting the time when some of the seismic gaps will produce large earthquakes. Geologic studies show that over the past 1,400 to 1,500 years large earthquakes have occurred at about 150-year intervals on the southern San Andreas fault. As the last large earthquake on the southern San Andreas occurred in 1857, that section of the fault is considered a likely location for an earthquake within the next few decades. The San Francisco Bay area has a slightly lower potential for a great earthquake, as less than 100 years have passed since the great 1906 earthquake; however, moderate-sized, potentially damaging earthquakes could occur in this area at any time.

 

A great earthquake very possibly will not occur unannounced. Such an earthquake may be preceded by an increase in seismicity for several years, possibly including several foreshocks of about magnitude 5 along the fault. Before the next large earthquake, seismologists also expect to record changes in the Earth's surface, such as a shortening of survey lines across the fault, changes in elevation, and effects on strainmeters in wells. The U.S. Geological Survey has placed an array of instruments in the Parkfield area and is carefully studying the data being collected, attempting to learn what changes might precede an earthquake of about that size.

 

 

 

Could California break off the U.S

 

California is not going to break off from the North American continent. It is true that California is cut in half by the San Andreas Fault that runs from the Salton Sea in the Mojave desert, bends north around Los Angeles, passes just west of San Francisco, and finally extends out into the Pacific Ocean where it ends off of the coast near Mendocino.

 

The San Andreas Fault is a boundary between two plates of the earth's crust. The earth's crust is split up into a number of plates that "float" on a semi-molten layer beneath them. The San Andreas Fault is the major fault separating the Pacific and North American Plates. The part of California to the west of the San Andreas Fault is part of the Pacific Plate--this includes, for example, San Diego, Los Angeles, and Santa Barbara. California to the east of the San Andreas Fault is part of the North American Plate. These plates are moving horizontally past each other along the San Andreas Fault at a rate of about 3.5 centimeters/year. Thus, Los Angeles is moving north with respect to San Francisco. At the present rate--in another fifteen million years--Los Angeles and San Francisco will lie next to each other.

 

As for the frequency of magnitude six earthquakes, it depends what area you are talking about. If you are referring only to the Los Angeles Basin, one magnitude six or larger earthquake every twenty years seems about right. For all of California, I can think of seven magnitude six or larger earthquakes that have occurred just in the last decade. In the written history of California (which only extends back about 200 years), there have been three great earthquakes--magnitude eight or larger shakers. These are the 1857 Central California earthquake, the 1872 Lone Pine earthquake, and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. The 1857 and 1906 earthquakes occurred along the San Andreas Fault; the 1872 earthquake occurred on the Sierra Nevada Fault at the eastern end of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.

 

 

 

Is it possible for California to break off from the U.S in the GTA Universe

 

This is Grand Theft Auto, anything can happen, and will happen to keep the viewers interested. Fictional places are taken to the extreme like Liberty City to New York and Vice City to Miami. That means, it is possible San Andreas as a state, could tear from the mainland and drift a little. In the Grand Theft Auto state of California, it is already really an island, so maybe the state splits, rather than tears from the mainland; but tears apart.

 

 

 

Liberty City, It's over, next stop...

"You bringing up the Liberty City: It's Over in the context of California just made me notice that the Los Angeles Basin matches the general shape of the tear"- Broseph

 

 

I know that this picture has been used many times as a clue for V, but just stay with me here. The tear in the picture, is a sector of the 'Mollis' picture. I think Rockstar might of been using tricky metaphors to the clue, which are this; Mollis was originally from Grand Theft Auto Vice City and, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The metaphor was that V would either be going back to Vice or San Andreas, since that is were Mollis originated from.

 

The second metaphor links with The San Andreas fault and San Andreas tearing from the mainland. The metaphor they used here is 'tearing', or the 'tear' in the paper; could this mean that SA state was torn from the U.S. Lastly, the tear has a particular shape to it, so could this be an earlier version of the map. Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City was released in 2009, and that's when GTA V started it's production; so was it added in the guide book for a reason. Also, the heart that is being torn apart is one other metaphor. Heart symbolizes strength and a relationship, that heart is the state of San Andreas and it is torn apart. So SA wouldn't be torn off the mainland, it was torn apart; meaning the strength of the state is falling.

 

 

 

What I think the map will look like

Black- Los Santos

Orange- Countryside including mountain ranges, no towns but old barns and abandonment of towns.

Yellow- Desert with mountain ranges, power windmills and a small town on the outskirt.

Green- Countryside with mountain ranges, small towns and beaches on the West facing the cove to the desert.

 

 

 

 

Monoploly Man- Metaphor for money

 

 

Tear in book- Metaphor for state dividing

 

 

Mollis- Metaphor for showing the orign of it

 

 

 

 

Will Grand Theft Auto V be only in Los Santos and it's countryside

 

 

user posted image

 

Yes, it will. If the San Andreas fault created a mass earthquake, eventually over time, tearing the state off the mainland, (in this matter, tearing SA apart). This means, that Los Santos will include it's own countryside, some parts of San Fierro and Las Venturas; parts of the city and bush that is, (as the city and the rest is miles away). Grand Theft Auto V will have the core of Los Santos and it's countryside with a tea spoon full of the other cities earlier regions. Los Santos and it's countryside regions are the biggest out of all three cities in the State.

 

 

 

 

How does GTA V relate to the money and the state being torn apart

 

 

user posted image

 

In many ways, like shipping and trading; trucks wouldn't be able to deliver things out of state, that's were planes come into the game.. People would loose jobs because cities are so far away from each other. The damage caused to the cities after the Earthquakes would be massive, so bossiness would have to shut down. Slowly, the economy would fall to it's knees and money would he hard to get. We really have no more information on V yet, so it's hard to tell what else would impact on the state dividing.

 

 

 

 

Will the game continue on to the other cities in a DLC or Stories or Episodes

 

user posted image

 

I think that V will end on a cliffhanger, with the money being picked up or something and somehow ends up in San Fierro, which then that would become a DLC involving the money in SF and then that games ends with a protagonist handing over the money to some person living in the Las Venturas district which that becomes a DLC. At the end, you make the decision to give it to the Casino, spend it and hope for the jackpot or give it back to 'Albert', because he has came looking for it.

 

 

 

In Conclusion

 

 

In conclusion, my theory shows that the state of San Andreas will be torn apart. After it is torn apart, the economy fails, money is hard to get because the state dividing. Some guy gets his money on some big dollars, that is the game of V, and then it passes onto the other tw cities. The game would revolve the the almighty dollar, passing through all states of San Andreas with an epic story behind it.

I was thinking that because it looks a little bulky. Is it alright if you could help me out; I can't summarize, because I somehow put more detail in when I do, I'll give credit.

I immediately assumed you were talking about why it's San Andreas, my bad, TinTinn.

 

Nice theory.

You do realize the first time San Andreas appeared was in GTA 1, correct? And that it was based on San Fransisco, and that's why it's called San Andreas since it's near the San Andreas fault?

 

Yes but San Andreas map is different to GTA 1 map, I am talking about the San Andreas map.

 

 

Edit: Don't worry about it but I'm going to keep it here as a reference so people don't make that exact same mistake.

Maybe an earthquake in the beginning of the game will separate the northern part from the south, San Andreas that is.

That's another great possibility; considering the heart is torn into two, not three.

It's saying they won't be coming back to Liberty, but relating to SA.

Wow, nice theory man. This is actually quite plausible. I always felt that by going to San Andreas, it means the other 2 cities provide good excuse for DLC. I just didn't see how it would happen, but this definitely makes it seem like a plausible idea.

 

Thanks for bringing something fresh to the table, even if it turns out wrong icon14.gifcookie.gif

 

PS. To those bitching about his source links, how about reading everything he said instead of just skimming to the last 2 lines of it and finding something to bitch about, just because he thought of the theory before you did.

Actually, that would be the best way around keeping the countryside/other areas locked off. Because they would only have to barrier up a small section of road or bridge that takes us to the rest of the map...

 

Also, if there's sharks, it may be almost impossible to swim across.

Lotus, thanks for the really positive feedback but try not to double post. I'm not trying to be rude, but a MOD will tell you that anyway.

If R* wants to completely do all of California, I could see them making it one giant island state because in many early maps of North America, California was depicted as an island rather than part of Mainland North America. R* takes the liberty in re-designing maps so that they closely resemble their real-life counterparts, but aren't an exact copy.

Just recently in science, we have been learning out tectonic plates and faults and in which the famous San Andreas fault was mentioned. From this, I have created a small theory about what is San Andreas and what happened to the state.

 

 

 

The San Andreas Fault

The presence of the San Andreas fault was brought dramatically to world attention on April 18, 1906, when sudden displacement along the fault produced the great San Francisco earthquake and fire. This earthquake, however, was but one of many that have resulted from episodic displacement along the fault throughout its life of about 15-20 million years.

 

Scientists have learned that the Earth's crust is fractured into a series of "plates" that have been moving very slowly over the Earth's surface for millions of years. Two of these moving plates meet in western California; the boundary between them is the San Andreas fault. The Pacific Plate (on the west) moves northwestward relative to the North American Plate (on the east), causing earthquakes along the fault. The San Andreas is the "master" fault of an intricate fault network that cuts through rocks of the California coastal region. The entire San Andreas fault system is more than 800 miles long and extends to depths of at least 10 miles within the Earth. In detail, the fault is a complex zone of crushed and broken rock from a few hundred feet to a mile wide. Many smaller faults branch from and join the San Andreas fault zone. Almost any road cut in the zone shows a myriad of small fractures, fault gouge (pulverized rock), and a few solid pieces of rock.

 

 

Earthquakes Along the Fault

 

Literally thousands of small earthquakes occur in California each year, providing scientists with clear indications of places where faults cut the Earth's crust. The largest historical earthquakes that occurred along the San Andreas fault were those in 1857 and 1906. The earthquake of January 9, 1857, in southern California apparently was about the same magnitude as the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. According to newspaper accounts, ground movement in both cases was roughly the same type. An account of the 1857 earthquake describes a sheep corral cut by the fault that was changed from a circle to an "S"-shape--movement clearly representative of right-lateral strike-slip. Studies of offset stream channels indicate that as much as 29 feet of movement occurred in 1857.

The San Francisco earthquake and fire of April 18, 1906, took about 700 lives and caused millions of dollars worth of damage in California from Eureka southward to Salinas and beyond. The earthquake was felt as far away as Oregon and central Nevada. The 1906 earthquake, which has been estimated at a magnitude 8.3 on the Richter Scale, caused intensities as high as XI on the Modified Mercalli Scale. Surface offsets occurred along a 250- mile length of the fault from San Juan Bautista north past Point Arena and offshore to Cape Mendocino.

 

On May 18, 1940, an earthquake of magnitude 7.1 occurred along a previously unrecognized fault in the Imperial Valley. Similar movement on the Imperial fault occurred during an earthquake in November 1979. The greatest surface displacement was 17 feet of right-lateral strike-slip in the 1940 earthquake. Clearly, this fault is part of the San Andreas system. Other earthquakes of probable magnitudes of 7 or larger occurred on the Hayward fault in 1836 and 1868 and on the San Andreas fault in 1838.

 

 

 

When Could the Next Large Earthquake Occur Along the San Andreas Fault?

 

 

Along the Earth's plate boundaries, such as the San Andreas fault, segments exist where no large earthquakes have occurred for long intervals of time. Scientists term these segments "seismic gaps" and, in general, have been successful in forecasting the time when some of the seismic gaps will produce large earthquakes. Geologic studies show that over the past 1,400 to 1,500 years large earthquakes have occurred at about 150-year intervals on the southern San Andreas fault. As the last large earthquake on the southern San Andreas occurred in 1857, that section of the fault is considered a likely location for an earthquake within the next few decades. The San Francisco Bay area has a slightly lower potential for a great earthquake, as less than 100 years have passed since the great 1906 earthquake; however, moderate-sized, potentially damaging earthquakes could occur in this area at any time.

 

A great earthquake very possibly will not occur unannounced. Such an earthquake may be preceded by an increase in seismicity for several years, possibly including several foreshocks of about magnitude 5 along the fault. Before the next large earthquake, seismologists also expect to record changes in the Earth's surface, such as a shortening of survey lines across the fault, changes in elevation, and effects on strainmeters in wells. A key area for research on methods of earthquake prediction is the section of the San Andreas fault near Parkfield in central California, where a moderate-size earthquake has occurred on the average of every 20-22 years for about the last 100 years. Since the last sizeable earthquake occurred in 1966, Parkfield has a high probability for a magnitude 5-6 earthquake before the end of this century and possibly one may occur within a few years of 1988. The U.S. Geological Survey has placed an array of instruments in the Parkfield area and is carefully studying the data being collected, attempting to learn what changes might precede an earthquake of about that size.

California to the east of the San Andreas Fault is part of the North American Plate. These plates are moving horizontally past each other along the San Andreas Fault at a rate of about 3.5 centimeters/year. Thus, Los Angeles is moving north with respect to San Francisco. At the present rate--in another fifteen million years--Los Angeles and San Francisco will lie next to each other.

If you are referring only to the Los Angeles Basin, one magnitude six or larger earthquake every twenty years seems about right.

Very Good Article. Nice writing. Whatever, you're totally right about this.. Because (the cities teared apart theory - after my theory) in the trailer we can spot the city in an economic colapse... People living on the streets... That mile high club propaganda and then the camera focus on the higher building (that is the bank). So we've some "jokes" of rockstar about this... But why ? Why los santos enter in collapse ?

Because of the earthquakes ?

Or is because of the actual situation of the USA that is in an economic collapse ?

Will be an epic story!

So here we've two crime brothers (Simon and Albert De Silva)and his "sons" and on the other a city f*cked up by the economic collapse.

People living on the streets... That mile high club propaganda and then the camera focus on the higher building (that is the bank). So we've some "jokes" of rockstar about this... But why, Why los santos enter in collapse..

 

Well, Los Santos is an economical city, right. You never really saw it collapse until the end of San Andreas with the riots.

 

 

Or is because of the actual situation of the USA that is in an economic collapse.

 

From R* point of view, they don't want to add in real life economic collapse. They would want to put in an economic collapse that relates to the game, the location and the characters.
