Strombolian acttivity at the summit vents of Stromboli (INGV)
CO2 flux measured on Stromboli (INGV)
Lava effusion seems to have stopped completely since about a week ago. Small strombolian explosions continue to occur sporadically from vents in the northern and central crater terrace at the summit. ...more

Thermal image of the upper Sciara del Fuoco of Stromboli
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

Lava flows on Stromboli last evening (photo: Ferruccio Ferrari)
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

Lava flows on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco and small ash emission this morning (INGV webcams)
There are no signs the effusive eruption is slowing down. A lava flow is being erupted from the vent at 650 m elevation and currently feeds two active branches on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. ...more

Lava flows on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco this evening (INGV thermal webcam)
The lava continues to flow through the northern channel on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. Effusion rate remains significant. Small ash emissions continue to occur from the western summit vents.

Lava flow on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco this evening (INGV webcam)
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.
