Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): strombolian activity July 2021

During a visit in mid to late July 2021, Stromboli was showing very regular and typical strombolian activity from several vents. Most notably though, the NE cone produced quite impressive eruptions at intervals of 15-20 minutes. Overall, activity at the volcano in this period was low to medium.
