Summary
After two weeks of relative calm, the New Southeast Crater of Etna has produced a new paroxysmal eruptive episode on the morning of 18 March 2012, the 22nd such event in the series initiated in January 2011.
As its predecessors, also this episode has been characterized by tall lava fountains, a tephra and vapor column several kilometers high (leading to ash and lapilli falls over the eastern sector of the volcano), and lava flows that descended into the Valle del Bove, locally interacting explosively with thick snow cover on the ground. The paroxysmal phase lasted less than two hours. A more detailed report will be posted here on Monday, 19 March 2012.

New weak strombolian activity from the New SE crater
Update Sat 17 Mar 17:38
Since this morning, weak explosive activity has been observed from the new South East crater (NSEC). Small ash ejections were observed by Etna Walk from Piano del Lago, accompanied by distinct explosions, and in some cases forming small ash mushrooms that rose and dissipated some 100 m above the crater.
Seismic signals of INGV show no significant changes of volcanic tremor, but this could be the start of the foreplay towards another paroxysm if Etna's eruptive behavior stays as has been during the past 14 months.

Update Mon 05 Mar 13:07
Sich Wetter verschlechtert, und es möglicherweise nicht viel Sicht auf dem Gipfel, aber wahrscheinlich wird es eine Pause in der Aktivität nun nach der Eruption gestern bis...?
Eruption has ended

Die Eruption endete, diesmal sehr schnell so oft während Paroxysmen Etna. Tremor ist zurück auf nahe Null, und die Eruption Spalte und Lava-Brunnen sind verschwunden, wie die Magma-Spalte in der Conduit gelöscht hat. Das warten auf die nächste Eruption kann beginnen!
