Geology News

Being a geologist, I can’t help but share what’s been going on around the world, geology-wise.

There’s not a whole lot, but a volcano did erupt yesterday, which was enough to get me excited.  Mount Asama in Japan began spewing out smoke and loose rock, but nothing extreme and nobody’s been hurt.  Mount Asama is in fact pretty active and doesn’t necessarily pose a threat.

Mount Fuji on the other hand is apparently due to erupt one day, so I hear, but I haven’t done any looking into that, so don’t quote me on it, but feel free to correct me!

P.S.  Go find Mount Asama on Google Earth, it’s pretty cool.
