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

Etna volcano update: Bocca Nuova crater floor collapses

mardi oct. 11, 2016 21:14 | AUTEUR : T

Current tremor amplitude (ESLN station / INGV Catania)
Current tremor amplitude (ESLN station / INGV Catania)
Etna mountain guide Marco Ponte reported that "the whole" of the Bocca Nuova crater has collapsed (subsided) by 50-70 meters since yesterday's explosion.
Volcanic tremor is showing a weak, but increasing trend, suggesting that something is happening at the volcano and could result in surface activity in a near future. What is coming next at Etna is currently pure speculation.
