Stromboli volcano eruptions:

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.

2-3 few days ago, the activity of Stromboli decreased significantly from its record intensity observed during the first half of September, and is now back at normal levels. ...more [read all]

Powerful explosion from the NE crater sending bombs many 100 m high and showering the flanks with glowing bombs (9 Sep 2011).
During most of August and up to today, Stromboli's activity has been at some of its highest levels observed in recent decades. Protagonist has been the NE crater, which has been continuing to produce powerful lava bubbles. Ejections of incandescent lava bombs often reached more than 500 m height, and hit both the Pizzo and Bastimento areas, the most popular viewing points (which for this reason remained closed for excursions most of the time). ...more [read all]

Stromboli volcano continues to be at an elevated level of activity, with frequent long-lasting spattering episodes from the NE crater, and occasional lava flows on the crater terrace. This indicates that the magma level inside its conduits is still unusually high.

The unusually strong summit activity at Stromboli volcano continues. Limited access to the summit area has been reopened for groups accompanied by certified guides only. This access permission is subject to daily review by the local Civil Protection.

The lava flow from yesterday is no longer active at the moment. As initially suspected, it was an overflow from the NE crater, not from a new flank vent. The explosive strombolian summit activity is continuing. The Civil Protection has temporarily closed access to the summit.

Lava flow on Stromboli volcano in March 2007.
A new lava flow eruption at Stromboli volcano has started today. The webcam of INGV suggests that the vent is the NE crater which seems to have overflowed and is feeding a flow down over the 2003 lava plateau and the Sciara del Fuoco and has reached the sea already. ...more [read all]

A lava flow is active from the SE vent of Stromboli volcano. The lava flow is confined to the crater terrace, but indicates very high levels of magma inside the conduit.
