    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.

    Landscapes of Japan, 11, Beach at Noda.

    Beach at Noda. -- Where there are indentations or bays along coastlines, wave action is reduced. In these more sheltered environments sediment which has been carried along the coast or brought to the bay by rivers from the land, may accumulate forming bars and beaches. If such deposition continues for a period of time, the bay may gradually fill, producing a level plain in the former coastal indentation. There are many such coastal plains along the Japanese shoreline, most of them small and isolated. -- Here, at Noda, barriers have been placed just offshore to further reduce wave action and promote deposition and beach formation and retention.

    Ajanta Caves, bridge over dry Waghora Riverbed

    Traffic accident along the road from Chengdu to Chongqing

    “As the driver [of the postal truck] started down the mountain he turned off his motor. I braced myself. As we free-wheeled around blind S-curves the driver leaned on his horn…When our momentum became so great that we couldn’t have gotten around the next curve on even two wheels, the driver reluctantly applied the brakes. The brakes were uneven, and the truck began swaying from side to side. I wondered whether I was lucky or unlucky to be seated so as to be unable to see where I would end.†[7]
