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.

Since 11 July, the volcano has been calmer compared to the previous weeks. No new lava overflows on the Sciara del Fuoco have occurred since 10 July, but who knows if a next surge of magma is already underway soon?

Lava overflow last evening
Lava overflow last evening
Two new lava (over-)flows occurred from the NE vent last evening and this morning. Similar as during the previous episodes, the flows were the result of surges in magma supply, quickly descended the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco, and then stopped: ...more [read all]

Similar as during the last times, activity is fluctuating. After a few hours of increased lava effusions, it dropped and the new lava overflow creased again yesterday evening.

After a weekend with comparably low activity and no lava overflows, a new surge of lava effusion has started and a small lava overflow is again active on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. The surge of the magma caused a partial collapse of the NE hornito (N2 vent) at 05:35 UTC, producing an impressive avalanche resembling a pyroclastic flow. ...more [read all]

Activity decreased again last night, and the latest lava flow (almost) stopped. Very weak lava effusion continues from the NE hornito vent ("N2" in INGV Catania's nomenclature) at the time of this update.
