Fuji as a ticking bomb

Scientists have found a 30-kilometer long fault, which runs directly below Mount Fuji, this team of researchers reported in a recent report.

This year we have already written about the activity of Mount Fuji in Japan. This fault has been detected by earthquake simulation held at a distance of 34 km from Fujiyoshida Yamanashi prefecture in Susono, said Hiroshi Sato, Professor of Earthquake Research Institute at the University of Tokyo.

According to the professor, further studies determining the exact depth and other information about the fault. Although the data on faults around Mount Fuji has already been confirmed, very little remains known about the seismic activity beneath the mountain. This is due to the floods caused by strong landslide, which occurred around 2600, 2900 years ago, and also because of the thick layer of volcanic ash. The last major eruption of Mount Fuji was in 1707.
