The Mount Fuji volcano of Japan has erupted 16 times since the 8th century – the last time was in 1707, the biggest.
Indications are there that it could erupt again and wreak havoc after 4-centiries as informed by Japan's National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Prevention.
This has been reported in theaustralian.com.au of dated the 8th of September 2012.
The conclusion of seismologists is based on a number of factors because seismologists believe that magma chamber of the volcano has come under immense pressure.
The magna chamber is a pool of molten liquid rock approximately 15-Km under the surface of the Earth and the pressure could result in an eruption.
Scientists have been tracking the tectonic movements post 2011 Tsunami and have calculated that the disturbances in the magna chamber is at 1.6-megapascals while eruptions have been recorded to have occurred with values as low as 0.1-megapacls.
That is a matter of serious concern because this 3776m Mount Fuji is a Shinto religious site and also a major tourist attraction.
