Mt. Fuji was given adequate pressure to erupt after 311


311 may have caused the eruption of Mt. Fuji though it may happen in the future.

311 and the aftershock of 3/15/2011 (M6.4) gave pressure to Mt. Fuji, which was big enough to cause eruption.

On 9/6/2012, National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention reported 311 and the following aftershock of 3/15/2011 gave pressure to magma reservoir of Mt. Fuji. It was strong enough to cause an eruption.
It’s not only pressure to cause eruption, no sign is observed to suggest Mt. Fuji’s eruption at this moment. However, Mt. Fuji erupted because of the smaller pressure when it had the last eruption back in 1707 (Hoei eruption). The researching team comments, it may cause an eruption in a few years, we still have to be cautious.

Le Mt. Fuji avait une pression adéquate pour entrer en éruption après le 11-3

Le 11 mars aurait pu provoquer une éruption du Mt. Fuji bien que cela puisse arriver dans le futur.

Le séisme du 11-3 et les répliques du 15 mars 2011 (M 6,4) ont fait monter la pression dans le Mt. Fuji, à un niveau suffisant pour induire une éruption.

Le 6 septembre 2012, le National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention rapporte que le 11-3 et la réplique suivante du 15/03/2011 ont fait monter la pression du réservoir de magma du Mt. Fuji. C’était assez fort pour provoquer une éruption.
La pression ne suffit pas pour provoquer une éruption, aucun signe n’est actuellement observé suggérant que le Mt. Fuji pourrait entrer en éruption. Toutefois, le Mt. Fuji était entré en éruption avec une pression inférieure la dernière fois, en 1707 (éruption de Hoei). L’équipe de recherche précise que cela pourrait provoquer une éruption dans quelques petites années, nous devons rester prudents.

About this site

This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
