Mount Fuji weakened by the great earthquake of 2011: Could its eruption destroy Tokyo?
The 2011 earthquake in Japan caused large cracks in the basement. Some hit the foot of Mount Fuji, which increases the pressure of the magma and let fear an eruption.
If he were to erupt, Mount Fuji could it destroy Tokyo?
The main problem that could cause a volcanic eruption of Mount Fuji is linked to ashes According to the wind, they could expect Tokyo and cover the city from 10 to 15 cm. Disturbances on electronic components arrive and drinking water is threatened, as the health of residents.
It is virtually unlikely that the magma reaches Tokyo, which is 100 km away. As for the underground cracks that could cause volcanic eruption, they would not reach Tokyo. The volcanic system stops at 50 km from the metropolis, it is unlikely that volcanic fissures exceed this distance.
A study saying that the risk of rash Fuji-san increased after the earthquake of 2011. What has been the influence of this earthquake on the volcano?
They began to study this area following the earthquake of 2011, which destroyed part of Fukushima. After the earthquake, they used the new tools to do an ultrasound of the earth. With the tools in the territory, they could retrieve the data up to 6 months before the earthquake.
There was very little while variations, they were virtually undetectable. Then the earthquake occurred. Suddenly, the sensors have shown great variations and disturbances. was expected that these disturbances would be strongest near the place where the earthquake occurred.
