Etna volcano (Sicily, Italy) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 15 June-21 June 2022 (Continuing Activity)
INGV reported that during 13-19 June gas emissions rose from Etna's Southeast Crater (SEC) and Bocca Nuova Crater (BN); the emissions from BN were dense and voluminous on 13 June and drifted SSW. Lava effusion from the vent located at about 2,700 m elevation, along the fissure that had opened on 29 May, had slowed by 13 June and stopped by that evening. Lava continued to erupt from a vent along the 7 June fissure, located at the base of the N wall of the Valle del Bove, advancing to 1,760 m elevation by 14 June.

Etna volcano (Sicily, Italy) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 8 June-14 June 2022 (Continuing Activity)
INGV reported that during 6-12 June explosive activity at Etna's Southeast Crater (SEC) produced sporadic and minor ash emissions that rapidly dispersed. The fissure located at the upper part of the Valle del Bove, between 2,700 and 2,900 m elevation, continued to produce lava flows at a variable rate. The flows were most active between 2,000 and 2,100 m elevation but overall were visibly cooling during the week. ... Read all
