LOS ALAMOS, N.M., July 21, 2016--The triggering of small, deep earthquakes along California's San Andreas Fault reveals depth-dependent frictional behavior that may provide insight into patterns signaling when a major quake could be on the horizon, according to a paper released this week by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS). read more
The same phenomenon that creates ocean tides is responsible for certain small "low-frequency" San Andreas fault earthquakes, according to new research. In a study recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, four scientists from the U.S. Show More Summary

Scientists from the US Geological Survey have determined that the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun can cause low-frequency quakes deep along fault lines, including the San Andreas Fault, offering an opportunity to scrutinize processes deep underground and possibly predict major quakes.

Since the time of Isaac Newton, scientists have wondered if the gravitational pull of the sun and moon might be strong enough to trigger earthquakes and tremors on Earth. An analysis of 81,000 low-frequency earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault now confirms these suspicions. Read more...
The gravitational tug between the sun and moon is not just a dance of high and low tides: It can also trigger a special kind of earthquake on the San Andreas fault. This phenomenon has fascinated scientists for years. Like sea levels, the surface of the Earth also goes up and down with the tides,...

GTA: San Andreas introduced us to Los Santos, so it’s only right we revisit it with GTA 5. GTA 5 may not take in as much of San Andreas as the eponymous game, and the streets may not have the same configuration – but it’s grounded in Rockstar’s earlier explorations of Los Angeles and California.
