Vesuvius volcano near Naples, Italy, seen from the air. The rim of the remnant of the older Somma volcano which collapsed in the 79 AD Plinian eruption is clearly visible to the left of the new Cono Grande cone with its crater.

Style éruptif tipique: Mainly explosive. I detail, Vesuvius has 4 typical types of eruptions: 1. Plinian (such as the 79 AD Pompeii eruption): extremely large explosive eruptions producing several to several tens of cubic km of magma in a very short time. 2. Sub-Plinian explosive eruptions (such as the 1631 eruption). They are similar in style, but smaller than true Plinian events. 3. Strombolian and Vulcanian eruptions (several examples during the 1631-1944 period, e.g. 1906 and 1944). Such eruptions produce local heavy tephra falls, small pyroclastic flows, as well as large fire fountains and lava flows. 4. The smallest, but most frequent type of activity observed at Vesuvius is persistent Strombolian to Hawaiian-style activity that prevailed during much of the period between 1631 and 1944. This activity is usually limited to the central crater, and sometimes to flank vents. Lava flows and lava fountains have been frequently observed during such periods of activity.

Principalement explosif. Dans le détail, le Vésuve a 4 types d'éruptions différentes:
1. éruption plinienne (ou Dynamisme plinien) (telque l'éruption de Pompéi en 79 AD): Ce sont des éruptions extrêmement fortes et puissantes produisant plusieurs kilomètres à plusieurs dizaines de kilomètres cube de magma pulvérisé dans une période très courte.
2. éruption Sub-Plinienne Ce sont des éruptions explosives (comme celle de 1631). Elles ont un style similaire, mais beaucoup plus petites que les vrais évents pliniens.
3. éruptions Strombolienne et Vulcanienne (Plusieurs exemples durant la période de 1631 - 1944, comme en 1906 et 1944). De telles éruptions produisent localement des chutes importantes de téphras, de petites coulées pyroclastiques, ainsi que de garndes fontaines de lave.
4. Le type d'activité le plus petit, mais le plus fréquent observé sur le Vésuve, est l'activité strombolienne persistante au style Hawaiien qui ont prévalu durant la période d'activité entre 1631 et 1944. Cette activité est en général limité au cratère central, et parfois au niveau des évents sur le flanc. Les coulées de lave et les fontaines de lave ont été fréquemment observées pendant de telles périodes d'activité.
