A new 3D computer code can simulate the propagation of blast waves generated by explosive volcanic eruptions. The authors recently applied this code to an imaginary eruption of Mt. Fuji, and although the simulation still bears many assumptions and simplifications, its numerical results provide useful information regarding wave interactions with local ground geometry.
