Potential eruption of Hakone would trigger the eruption of Mt. Fuji

On 2/18/2013, Fukushima Diary reported the unusually frequent earthquake in Hakone, which could be a sign of eruption.

(cf, [Sign of eruption ?] There has been over 1300 quakes in Hakone since mid January of 2013 [URL])

A professor emeritus Kimura from Ryukyu university commented the potential eruption of Hakome may trigger the eruption of Mt. Fuji because these two volcanos share the same ground.

Experts are trying to research low‐frequency earthquake. Low‐frequency earthquake occurs just before an eruption or after. It’s caused by the movement of magma. Magma comes from south volcanos, Miharayama and Miyakejima to Hakone.
Kimura comments these two volcanos (Miharayama and Miyakejima) have already erupted, it wouldn’t be strange even if Hakone erupts too, which may trigger the eruption of Mt. Fuji.

La probable éruption du volcan Hakone pourrait déclencher celle du Mt. Fuji


Le 18 février 2013, le Fukushima Diary rapportait les séismes inhabituels à Hakone, pouvant être un signe d’éruption. (cf. [Signe d’éruption ?] Il y a eu plus de 1300 séismes à Hakone depuis la mi-janvier 2013)

Le professeur émérite Kimura de l’université de Ryukyu en dit que la probable éruption d’Hakome peut déclencher une éruption du Mt. Fuji parce que ces deux volcans partagent le même sous-sol.

Les experts essayent de détecter les séismes basse-fréquence. Les séismes basse‐fréquence surviennent juste avant ou après les éruptions. Ils sont provoqués par les mouvements du magma. Le magma vient par les volcans du Sud, les Miharayama et Miyakejima vers celui d’Hakone.
le Pr Kimura dit que ces deux volcans (le Miharayama et le Miyakejima) ont déjà fait leur éruption, il ne serait pas étonnant que même le Hakone entre en éruption lui aussi, ce qui pourrait déclencher une éruption du Mt. Fuji.


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.
