Current volcanic activity index according to LGS
Current volcanic activity index according to LGS
The visual activity at the volcano remains at typical low to moderate levels, characterized by weak to moderate strombolian explosions mainly from the NE vent, as well as spattering and puffing from other vents in the crater terrace.
Internal activity parameters are elevated, resulting in an overall HIGH volcanic activity index on the scale developed by the Experimental Geophysical Laboratory of the University of Florence (LGS):
As of 3 Feb, similar to the previous days, degassing and explosive activity have been low to medium. The number of explosions recorded at the NE vent was 26 during 24 hours, or little more than one per hour, with rather low ejection velocities (18 m/s) of volcanic material.
On the other hand, internal unrest identified by volcanic tremor and volcanic quakes has been showing high values, suggesting that the relative calm of activity at the surface might change quickly.

Lava flow on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco last night (image: INGV Catania webcam)
A short phase of elevated activity occurred at the volcano last night. A small surge of magma apparently resulted in a series of lava flows from the northern vents onto the upper Sciara del Fuoco, generating beautiful incandescent rockfalls on the steep slope. None of the flows reached more than about 100-200 m length and none remained active very long. ... leggere tutti
