Aogashima - 青ヶ島

Hello everyone,in the last post we talked about island in the Pacific Ocean, and this is kind of island, but its volcanic Japanese island,a quick  look at the volcanic, i'm sure we all know what is the volcanic, but in case someone doesn't know what is it, the volcanic is is a rupture in the crust of a planetary-mass object, such as Earth, that allows hot lava, volcanic ash, and gases to escape from a magma chamber below the surface.



The Aogashima is in the Philippine Sea, and its located approximately 358 kilometres (222 mi) south of Tokyo and 64 kilometres (40 mi) south of Hachijō-jima. It is the southernmost and most isolated inhabited island of the Izu archipelago, and this volcanic island administered by Tokyo, because its close to tokyo so japan decided to administrate the island,and the village of Aogashima administers the island under Hachijō Subprefecture of Tokyo Metropolis.



information about this volcanic island, as of 2014 the  population for the island is  170,and the island  Aogashima is also within the boundaries of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, and the The island's area is 8.75 km2 (3.38 sq mi),and 3.5 km in length with a maximum width of 2.5 km, formed by the overlapping remnants of at least four submarine calderas.the island is green, which mean its full of trees and kinds of plants.

The volcanic island is surrounded by very steep rugged cliffs of layered volcanic deposits,The southern coast also rises to a sharp ridge forming one edge of a caldera named Ikenosawa with a diameter of 1.5 km.and The caldera dominates the island with one point on its southern ridge, Otonbu  with a height of 423 metres (1,388 ft), the island's highest point, its The caldera is occupied by a secondary cone named Maruyama.



Little bit of the Volcanic island Aogashima,most of people live in the volcanic island are Japanese people,The island is mentioned in Edo period records kept at Hachijō-jima, which record volcanic activity in 1652, and from 1670–1680. An earthquake swarm in July 1780 was followed by steam rising from the lakes in the Ikenosawa Caldera. Further earthquakes in May 1781 led to an eruption. In April 1783, lava flows from the Maruyama cone resulted in the evacuation of all 63 households on the island. During a massive eruption in 1785, some 130–140 of the population of 327 islanders perished, so this is pretty much everything i can mention, you have reach to the end of this article, i hope it was good for you, at the end i will leave to enjoy some photos for this volcanic island to get the right picture, thank you for reading, i will catch you in the next article.
