  4. Formation 形成 • Mount Fuji was formed by eruptions • Mount Fuji has four major phases (eruptions) in its volcanic history: • Sen-komitake: the igneous rock core consisting of andesite, which was the first eruption • KomitakeFuji: the layer of basalt after sen-komitake (several hundred thousand years ago) • Old Fuji: formed over the basalt of komitake Fuji about one hundred thousand years ago • New Fuji formed over Old Fuji about ten thousand years ago

  5. Geology 地質学 • Mount Fuji is a composite volcano • It produces 10,000 km3 every 100,000 years • A tear in the Philippines Sea Plate allows magma to surface underneath Mount Fuji • Mount Fuji is dormant • Mount Fuji releases lava and pyroclastic material

  6. Rocks 石 • Mount Fuji mostly consists of basalt • Basalt is fine-grained and igneous • The inner core/cone of Mount Fuji is made of andesite • Andesite is a fine-grained igneous rock

  7. Mineral Composition ミネラル構成 • Basalt consists of the minerals: • Pyroxene, olivine, feldspar, and quartz • Andesite mineral composition includes: • Plagioclase, feldspar, potassium, and sometimes olivine, biotite, or amphibole

  8. Fun Facts! 楽しみ事実 • Strato-volcanoes are the steepest and tallest type of volcano • Mount Fuji is part of the Ring of Fire • Mount Fuji is almost perfectly symmetrical • Mount Fuji means “everlasting life” • Mount Fuji can be seen from Tokyo On a clear day • A bump on the northern slope of Fuji is actually the summit crater of Komitake
