Stromboli volcano
stratovolcano 926 m
Eolian Islands, Italy, 38.79°N / 15.21°E

Stromboli webcams / live data

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.

No significant changes have occurred. The lava flow(s) erupted from the vent at 650 m elevation on the northern base of the crater continue to be active on the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco only. Compared to previous days, the flow has been weaker today.

The effusive eruption continues with little changes and no signs of ending soon. The effusion rate is fluctuating, but elevated and the vent feeds two flows that travel down the Sciara in two channels. ...more [read all]

The lava flow in the new channel at the eastern side of the Sciara del Fuoco remains well alimented. After a calmer weak, it is now again reaching the sea, at least intermittently.

View onto the upper part of the lava flow early on the 10th of August, showing the trajectory of the lava from the vent down onto and across the plateau before it flows down the Sciara del Fuoco. Only the vent at the origin and the overflow from the plateau are visible from the 400 m webcams.

Evolution of the lava flow's effusion rate and channels down the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco over the last 2 days
Evolution of the lava flow's effusion rate and channels down the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco over the last 2 days
After fluctuating and unstable effusive activity during the last few days, the vent seems to have once again increased its magma effusion rate and triggered a new pathway for the lava to flow down the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco. ...more [read all]

The lava flow continues to be active, but the effusion rate has been more and more unstable and fluctuates a lot. This results in lava flows taking different (often overlapping) paths on the upper portion of the Sciara del Fuoco. ...more [read all]

Decreasing effusion rate this afternoon lets the channels almost "fall dry"
Decreasing effusion rate this afternoon lets the channels almost "fall dry"
Lava continues to flow from the fissure vent at the base of the NE crater. Compared to the first week, the effusion rate has become more unstable, causing several surges and intervals of strongly decreasing activity. ...more [read all]

Lava flow activity continues. However, the recent surge in lava effusion seems to have considerably lost strength compared to yesterday.

The eruption continues with no significant change, but lava effusion seems to have increased. Several secondary active branches formed on the upper part of the new lava flow field and are visible on webcam images.

No significant changes have occurred during the past days. The lava flow continues to be active from the vent at the base of the NE cone, but the effusion rate is slowly decreasing overall.
