Volcan Etna (Italie), mise à jour d'activité: un autre paroxysme faible de SE cratère

jeudi janv. 01, 1970 00:00 | AUTEUR : TOM PFEIFFER

Another strong eruptive phase ("paroxysm") occurred at SE crater today (19 Nov 2006), characterized by a strong increase of lava output and corresponding activation of different vents, probably belonging to one and the same feeding system:
During the morning, the crater was seen and hear emitting dense ash from a vent in the collapse pit on the E side accompanied by loud detinations. Scientist from INGV on location observed mild, near-continuous strombolian activity ejecting bombs outside of the crater. Since the morning, a lava flow emerged from the vent inside the collapse pit and is overflowing the area SE of the crater still covered by the debris flow of the partial collapse from 16 Nov.
Also during the morning, the 3050 vent W of SE crater became active again and was feeding new flows.
At around noon, the 2800 m vent in Valle del Bove started spattering again.
