Stromboli volcano, Italy: eruption update
Thursday Oct 13, 2005 00:50 AM | BY: MARCO FULLE & TOM PFEIFFER
Marco Fulle sends this report based on observations made by a VolcanoDiscovery group, who climbed Stromboli on 11 Oct. 2005: Stromboli's activity was significant, with 8 active vents in three clusters (corresponding to the former W, Central and E craters): during 1 hour, they observed 2 faint eruptions from the W vent nr. 1, which is hidden from Pizzo, while stong glow was visible from the second vent in the W crater. During the same time, 5 eruptions occurred from the westermost vent in the central vent complex (the former Central crater), emitting few bombs but lots of gas during its eruptions, and seven (!) eruptions ejecting lava to up to 250 m height were observed from the second central vent, which is now found at the top of a tall cone.
