    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 20, Mt. Iwate, near Morioka.

    Mt. Iwate, near Morioka. -- Mt. Iwate, a potentially dangerous composite volcano, reminds us that the same geological processes that can cause widespread death and destruction also produce much of the natural beauty of Japan. Convergence of earth plates bends and breaks crustal rocks producing earthquakes in the process, but at the same time uplifts the surface to create spectacular mountains. Erupting volcanoes formed along these convergent boundaries lay waste to the landscape, yet also produce magnificent, graceful peaks like Mt. Fuji and Mt. Iwate. Wave action erodes coastlines, but also creates picturesque sea cliffs and stacks and magnificent indented shorelines. The same dynamic earth processes that created the Japanese Islands make them both dangerous and magnificent. In Japan, it is very difficult not be affected, both physically and emotionally, by the natural environment.

    Environmental Implications of Japan's Geology 01, High population density, Ginza, Tokyo.

    High population density, Ginza, Tokyo. -- With a total area of about 143,000 square miles, Japan is a bit smaller than California. Much of the land is too mountainous for cities and towns so the population is concentrated on those areas flat enough to build upon. About 70 percent of Japanese live in cities, and in places like Tokyo the population density may reach 20,000 or more people per square mile. -- Because of its location at the boundary of converging earth plates, Japan is geologically active with frequent earthquakes and volcanic activity. When these natural processes adversely affect people they are considered geological hazards. With a large population concentrated in a small areas, Japan is susceptible to serious geological disasters.
