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

Etna volcano update: Eruption continues, lava flows enter Valle del Bove

Etna's lava flows descending into Valle del Bove; strombolian activity from the New SE cone (c) and strong glow from Voragine summit crater (r) (image: Osservatorio Meteorologico Nunziata webcam, view from E)

Strombolian activity at the New SE cone and the new lava flow from the fissure at its base (Radiostudio 7 webcam from Montagnola, view from S)
The explosive-effusive eruption continues strongly. Several well-alimented lava flows are descending into the Valle del Bove from elevations between 2500-2700 m at the rim.
At the New SE cone, strombolian explosions or low, pulsating lava fountaining continue.
The latter strombolian-type activity returned to be the dominant activity at the cone shortly before 23:00 local time on Thurday (16 Mar), abruptly replacing the previously intense ash emissions from the same vent. What caused the rapid change in eruption style at this vent is unclear.

During the night 16-17 March, the lava flow from the new fissure vent at the southern base of the SE crater started to descend into the Valle del Bove. The first flow front arrived at the edge of the depression at 23:48 near the Cisternazza pit crater (at about 2600 m elevation) and then quickly descended the steep slope into the Valle, reaching the ridge (formed by dykes) of the Sierra Giannicola Grande shortly before 2am (17 Mar).
A bit later, small glowing rockfalls began to descend into the Valle from points higher upslope, near the Beledere zone (2700 m elevation), originating from the sides of a branch of the lava flowing more or less parallel to the edge of the Valle.
This situation continued all day during yesterday (17 Mar). At around 22:30 in the evening, two tongues of the lava flow also started to descend into the Valle del Bove from the Belvedere area.
As of 02 am local time (18 March), the activity continues with little signs of waning and the lava flows (currently 3 branches actively descending into the Valle del Bove) remain well alimented. Tremor levels although lower than during the first 24 hours of the eruptive phase have more or less stabilized at elevated levels.
