BeschreibungHaku-san volcano is a complex andesitic-dacitic stratovolcano which was constructed over a high basement of sedimentary rocks. Eruptions in the past 10,000 years consisted of phreatic or phreatomagmatic explosions from several summit craters.
Partial collapse of the summit produced a debris avalanche that came down the east flank ca. 5,000 years ago.
