High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles Mount Asama is an active
complex volcano in central Honshu, the main island of Japan. The
volcano is the most active on Honshu. The Japan Meteorological
Agency classifies Mount Asama as rank A. It stands 2,568 metres
above sea level on the border of Gunma and Nagano prefectures. It
is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan. Mount Asama sits at
the conjunction of the Izu-Bonin-Mariana Arc and the Northeastern
Japan Arc. The mountain is built up from non-alkali mafic and
pyroclastic volcanic rocks dating from the Late Pleistocene to the
Holocene. The main rock type is andesite and dacite. Scientists
from Tokyo University and Nagoya University completed their first
successful imaging experiment of the interior of the volcano in
April 2007. By detecting sub-atomic particles called muons as they
passed through the volcano after arriving from space, the
scientists were able gradually to build up a picture of the
interior, creating images of cavities through which lava was
passing deep inside the volcano.
