Stile eruttivo tipico:
Attività quasi continua ai crateri sommitali con esplosioni di tipo stromboliano ed episodi periodici di fontane di lava associati a colate. Ad intervalli irregolari di anni (da pochi mesi a diversi decenni) avvengono eruzioni laterali che producono effusioni di lava spesso associate a moderata attività esplosiva.
