Mount Fuji is getting angry
Rumbles hint that Mount Fuji is getting angry

SOMETHING is brewing under Japan's Mount Fuji. Using rocks ejected by previous eruptions, between 781 AD and 1707, geologists are figuring out what the volcano's internal plumbing looks like.

A team led by Takayuki Kaneko at the University of Tokyo's Volcano Research Center has found that over the centuries the magma's silica levels have gradually increased. High silica tends to indicate large explosions, suggesting eruptions have become more violent. Large amounts of basalt rich in aluminium oxide were also found, which can trigger an eruption when it collides with silica.

Based on the pressures required to form both materials, Kaneko believes the two mineral composites are housed in separate chambers under Fuji: one deep chamber 20 kilometres below the volcano, rich in basaltic magma, and a shallower chamber housing the silica 9 kilometres underground.

He says the deep rumble of low-frequency earthquakes beneath Fuji in 2000 and 2001 suggests movement inside the basaltic magma chamber, and adds he would not be surprised if Fuji erupts in the very near future.

Not everyone agrees. For an eruption, new basaltic magma from deeper underground must intrude into the existing basaltic chamber, pushing it towards the silica, says Phil Shane at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and we simply don't know if that is happening.

Did the iron in your blood and calcium in your bones come from a long-ago supernova? Astronomer and writer Carl Sagan thought so. "We are star stuff", Sagan once said.
Every one of us is precious in the cosmic perspective. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.


We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands.

no kidding man. did you happen to hear about the night some of us here saw a ufo lurking around one of the iceland volcanos on the webcam? i knew then what was going on. on its last pass over the volcano, the volcano really flared up, like it had sent a blast of energy down it.

Wouldn't it be cool if Fuji blew up like Mt. St. Helens?

Re: Mount Fuji is getting angry
Could you imagine a volcano blowing up right next to one of the largest cities on Earth?
And, it being one of the most important cities for the global economy.

Everything else would pale in comparison.

This isn't good. But at least it's not the supervolcano at Yellowstone!
