Stromboli volcano eruptions:
Persistant (near-constant) activity since at least 2-3000 years. Lava flow eruption from Dec. 2002-July 2003, and in March 2007.
Typical eruption style:
Small explosive (strombolian) eruptions, typically every 20-30 mins. Intermittently, ca. every 2-20 years, minor effusive eruptions (lava flows); on average 2-5 times per year larger explosions.

The effusive eruption that had started on 7 August seems to be ending: the lava flow emitted from the 650 m vent at the eastern base of the summit crater complex has decreased a lot two days ago and seems to have almost (or completely) stopped by today. ...more

No major changes have occurred at the volcano: Lava effusion continues from the 650 m vent and feeds active lava flows on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. From the lava flow fronts, incandescent blocks detach and roll down the slope. ...more

Yesterday's lava overflow has established a new channel for the ongoing lava flow now along the upper northern part of Sciara del Fuoco, closer to the escarpment and more visible from the 400 m webcam. The previously active flow in the central part of the Sciara is now inactive.

The eruptive activity has remains more or less unchanged: the lava flow is still active while sporadic explosive activity continues from the summit vents. As lava output rates from the 650 m vent fluctuate, the front of the lava flow, located in the central part of the Sciara del Fuoco since 6 Sep, advances and retreats in the lower part of the Sciara, sometimes almost reaching the sea. ...more [read all]

Strombolian explosions have returned to the summit vents, although so far, these have been rare and small. At the same time, the effusive eruption with lava flow emission from the vent at 650 m a.s.l. at the northern base of the crater terrace complex continues with little changes. ...more [read all]
