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: New eruptive (largely effusive) episode

vendredi avril 14, 2017 09:50 | AUTEUR : T

Etna's lava flow this morning (Radiostudio 7 webcam from Montagnola)
Etna's lava flow this morning (Radiostudio 7 webcam from Montagnola)
Strombolian activity at the summit vent of the SE cone
Strombolian activity at the summit vent of the SE cone
Beginning of lava effusion from both the summit vent and the opening vent at the southern base shortly after
Beginning of lava effusion from both the summit vent and the opening vent at the southern base shortly after
After 48 hours of pause since the previous, short-lived eruptive episode, a new effusive eruptive phase began last evening, involving 3 vents.
Tremor started to rise from 20:00 local time; strong glow started to appear at the summit vent of the new SE cone on top of the crater complex shortly after 22:00 local time, suggesting the time when new magma arrived near the surface. A phase of weak strombolian-type explosions followed from this vent.
Starting at 22:27, lava flows started to appear: probably first from the summit vent, but immediately followed by the opening and stronger lava effusion from the from the vent at the southern base of the crater complex (which had been the site of the previous eruptions in March and early April).
It seems that shortly after, a third effusive vent opened about half way between the other two vents on the upper slope of the SE crater complex, also feeding a lava flow.
While the two lava flows from the higher vents stopped during the night, the one from the lower vent continues to travel towards the east and reached the Valle del Bove slope from around 4:00 am (local time) at night.
As of this morning, this lava flow is still active.
