Geological Summary

Akandanayama is located NW of Abo Pass in south-central Honshu. It is a stratovolcano composed of a lava dome, lava flow, and pyroclastic deposits. Shirataniyama volcano and the active Yakedake volcano are to the N. Volcanic activity began with the formation of a lava dome that covered Shirataniyama, ending about 10,000 years ago. Collapse of the dome produced pyroclastic deposits, and afterwards a landslide went SW from the summit (JMA, 2013).

The Global Volcanism Program is not aware of any Holocene eruptions from Akandanayama. If this volcano has had large eruptions (VEI >= 4) prior to 10,000 years ago, information might be found on the Akandanayama page in the LaMEVE (Large Magnitude Explosive Volcanic Eruptions) database, a part of the Volcano Global Risk Identification and Analysis Project (VOGRIPA).

This compilation of synonyms and subsidiary features may not be comprehensive. Features are organized into four major categories: Cones, Craters, Domes, and Thermal Features. Synonyms of features appear indented below the primary name. In some cases additional feature type, elevation, or location details are provided.
