Eruptions du volcan Etna:
En activité quasi permanente ; certaines grandes éruptions historiques telles que : en 122 BC (éruption explosive du sommet), AD 1669 (éruption sur le flanc sud dévastatrice), 1787 (l'une des plus spectaculaires éruptions au sommet enregistrée - fontaines de lave, semble-t-il, jusqu'à 3000 m de haut).
Les éruptions depuis 1950 (f: flanc / s: activité sommitale): 1950-51(f), 1952(s), 1953(s?), 1955-64(s), 1966-1970(s), 1966(f), 1971(f), 1971-1980(s), 1974(f), 1978(f), 1979(f), 1980-81(s), 1981 (f), 1983(f), 1984(s), 1985(f), 1986(s), 1987(f), 1987(s), 1989(f), 1989-1991(s), 1991-93(f), 1995-2001(s), 2001(f), 2002(s), 2002-03(f), 2004-2005 (f),2006(s),2007(s),2008-9(f)
Style éruptif tipique:
Effusive (coulée de lave et fontaine de lave) et explosive avec des éruptions modérées stromboliennes et parfois phréatomagmatiques. Les deux types d’activités éruptives ont lieu fréquemment au sommet et sur ses flancs. Ses éruptions latérales au niveau des flancs, semblent se regrouper sur des laps de temps d’environs quelques dizaines d’années

Small ash emission from Etna's New SE crater
Occasional explosions from the New SE crater seem to continue. Small ash emissions could be observed on the morning of 22 Oct when clear weather allowed clear views of the crater. Tremor remains low at the moment.

View into Etna's NEcrater today
There are no significant changes or signs of a new paroxysm very soon. Sporadic weak explosions with ash emissions continue at the New SE crater. Tremor has remained low. ...plus

Powerful explosion at Etna New SE crater on 11 Aug 2014 (Photo: Emanuela / VolcanoDiscovery Italia)
Strong strombolian explosions in rapid succession and lava effusion continue from the New SE crater with little variation during the past days. An ash plume is rising a few 100 m. Tremor has dropped a bit yesterday, but remains elevated. ...plus [lire toutes]

Thermal image of Etna's active lava flows from the effusive vent at the base of the NE crater (Monte Cagliato thermal webcam, INGV Catania)
Decreasing tremor and weakening thermal signals suggest that the explosive / effusive activity from the vents at the eastern foot of the NE crater still continues, but at reduced rate. At least one lava flow seems to be still active.

No significant changes have occurred at the volcano recently. Lava continues to arrive at the vent(s) at the eastern base of the NE crater, where strombolian activity is building up a complex cone and several small lava flows are spreading towards the Valle del Bove. ...plus [lire toutes]

Thermal image of Etna's active lava flows from the effusive vent at the base of the NE crater
No significant variations in activity have occurred during the past days. Small lava flows are being fed by the new fissure vent at the eastern base of the NE crater. At the vent, this activity is accompanied by spattering, sometimes resembling strombolian-type explosions with ejections up to approx. 100 m in height. ...plus [lire toutes]
