Sfondo

Two subsidiary cones are located low on the eastern flank. The morphology of Minami Kasuga is more complex than Kasuga 1 volcano to the north, and prominent ridges separate slopes of interspersed volcaniclastic and lava flow fields. Radionuclide decay rates indicate an age for Minami Kasuga of less than 8000 years and probably less than 1000 years; radium/thorium disequilibrium ratios suggest the flows may be only a few centuries old (Fryer et al., 1997). Active hydrothermal fields are located at the summit of Minami Kasuga, at the base of summit ridges, and on the lower flanks.
