Transcript of Mount Fuji, Japan. Volcano Project.

Mount Fuji, Japan. This is a diagram of Mount Fuji and how it works. Mount Fuji is a Composite
Cone, aslo know as stratavolcanoes. That means Mt. Fuji is made up of explosive eruptions of pyroclastic material (magma that is blasted into the air and hardens) followed by slow flows of lava. Mount Fuji is located right on the boarder between Shizuoka and Yamanashi Japan. Here is Mount. Fuji erupting. Type of eruption Mount Fuji has. Lava Type of Mount Fuji. The type of lava Mount Fuji has is water and magma. Rating on the Volcanic Explosive Index for Mount Fuji. The rating on the Volcanic Explosive Index for Mount Fuji is a five out of eight. That means that Mount Fuji is paroxysmal. Paroxysmal attacks are short, frequent, and pretty harsh. Location. Mount Fuji has explosive, pyroclastic eruptions. Destruction! An eruption began on the 16th of December, 1707 on the South East side of the Mount Fuji along with pumice fall. Pumice is a rock that can float on water because it has air pockets making the rock float. The desrtuction was harsh. The eruption was highly explosive, and generated mudflows. The mudflows killed animals and trees. Environmental Impacts! The environmental impacts Mount Fuji had was that it had a huge, explosive eruption causing mudflows. The mudflows destroyed trees, habitats, wildlife, and forests. $Cost!$ Mount Fuji didn't cost anything, or at least not money. 1707 was the most recent eruption so there was nobody living near it. The only cost was the lives of many animals. But, because Fuji hasn't erupted in over 300 years scientists are guessing, because of the rescent earthquake, all of the pressure building up will be released and it will have a GIANT explosion. They think it will cost 2.5 trillion dollars. Loss Of Life. No body died from the eruptions! :) (besides animals) :'( At least no people were near the volcano. Volcanic Hazards of Mount Fuji! The volcanic hazards Mount Fuji has are pyloclastic flows, laha, volcanic bombs, and ash. Laha is mud and debris flows. Prevention/Protection. To prevent death you should store fresh water and food. You should also pack clothes and be prepared for power outages. To be safe before the eruption you should learn your community's emergency evacuation plans and pack supplies like a dust mask, goggles, and food. For protection during an eruption you should follow your plans, stay away from rivers and mudflows, and find a secure shelter away from the eruption. Mount Fuji Rules! The End! Thanks For Watching!
