An alluvial plain develops along the head of Suruga Bay which is surrounded with Quaternary volcanoes such as Mts. Fuji, Ashitaka, and Hakone to the north, and volcanic groups in the Izu Peninsula to the east. This plain comprises the Tagata Plain, the Mishima Fan, the Kano River Delta, the Ukishimagahara and the Fuji River Fan. The aim is to clarify the stratigraphy and the distribution of the recent formations in each area, and to reconstruct their palaeo-sedimentary environments. The geomorphic development of the region during the latest Pleistocene to the Holocene is summarized.-from English summary
