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

Ash emissions from Etna's NE crater
The NE crater started again to produce puffs of ash, generating small plumes drifting southwest.

Etna this morning
The volcano is at the moment calm. During Wednesday, the initially strong ash-venting activity from the NE crater decreased and stopped yesterday. ...plus

Ash emissions from NE crater
Ash emissions from NE crater continue, but seem to be decreasing in intensity. ...plus

Ash emission from Etna's NE crater this morning
Another of the summit vents seems to be becoming protagonist in the current eruptive phase: the NE crater has been producing near-continous small to moderate ash emissions throughout the night and the morning. Incandescence was occasionally seen at the base of the plumes as well, suggesting strombolian activity. ...plus [lire toutes]

This morning's earthquakes at the Pernicana fault of Etna
Over the morning, surface activity at Etna's New Southeast Crater strongly decreased, and the lava flow seems no longer be active now. Tremor has dropped as well, but ash emissions and occasional explosions continue from several of the summit craters, including the Northeast. ...plus [lire toutes]
mar., 8 déc. 2015, 09:09
Lava flow from Etna's New SE crater this morning
Lava fountaining from the pit crater on the upper New SE cone's flank continued all day yesterday and fed a lava flow with two branches, the main one headed to the east reaching quickly the Valle del Bove, a lesser one to the NE base of the cone. ...plus [lire toutes]

Lava fountaining and lava flow from NSEC (Photo: Emanuela / VolcanoDiscovery Italia)
The activity at the New SE crater has been continuous all day and is still gradually increasing. A low lava fountain feeds a lava flow from the new pit crater. This flow occasionally generates small pyroclastic flows as parts of its front collapse on the steep slope. ...plus

Lava fountain during Etna's 4th Voragine paroxysm
The speed at which activity increases is truly impressive. Even from webcams located more or less downwind (i.e. receiving much ash blocking clear view), the lava fountain is now visible clearly.
sam., 5 déc. 2015, 15:46
Lava fountain and ash plume from Voragine
The 4th lava fountaining episode in less than 3 days has began at Etna's Voragine. Intermittent strombolian activity, elevated throughout the day since the end of last night's paroxysm, has now merged into sustained jets (fountains) of lava. An ash plume is again rising several kilometers. ...plus [lire toutes]
