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.

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.

Stromboli's lava flow in August 2014

The lava flow continues to be well alimented with little variation visible. It forms an active stream on most of the Sciara, but its flow front during the past days only occasionally reached the sea, and rather accumulated to thicken the lava delta at the NE base of the Sciara.

Stromboli's lava flows yesterday night
Stromboli's lava flows yesterday night
The lava effusion continues at decreasing, but still considerable rate. When seen yesterday evening, only one channel, 5-10 m wide was still entering the sea at 10 m wide front, while there had been up to 7 branches reaching the shore in the area west of or partially covering the 2007 lava delta. Small explosions were occurring at the sea entry. ...more [read all]
