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.

Strombolian eruption from Stromboli's NE vent yesterday

New lava overflow on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco this morning (INGV thermal webcam)
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]
