Etna volcano (Italy), activity update: continuing ash and lava emission
Tuesday May 20, 2008 11:54 AM |
Although further decreasing, ash and lava emissions are still continuing from the new fissure vents at the E base of SE cone.
Monday, May 19, 2008
Lava and ash emissions continue although at very low levels. The violent fissure eruption that started on May 13 from an originally 600 m long east-trending fissure parting from the NE base of the SE crater at around 2900 m elevation decreased surprisingly quickly in intensity. It seems to be coming to a soon end, although a weak emission of lava continues at present. ...
Tuesday, May 13, 2008
From field observations by Rosario, the beginning of a large new eruption at Etna is confirmed. Following the intense tremor, a fissure has opened NE of the SE crater, about 800m long, and erupting from about 15 vents with spectacular bubbles and hawaiian lava fountains. The lava is very fluid and forms impressive flows into the Valle del Bove. ...

As observed during our recent tour to Etna and the Eolian Islands
, mild strombolian activity, with small exploisions every 10-20 minutes, is present at the vent located at the lower E flank of the SE crater of Etna.

Etna is back to its glory once more.
Monday, Sep 03, 2007
Etna's SE crater, the youngest and in recent years most active of its 4 summit vents, is increasing its activity.
Since the ash emissions started in mid August, weak strombolian activity has been increasing gradually. The first incanescent ejecta were observed by INGV on 21 August. Over the past week, strombolian activity has become more and more common. On 31 August, an overflight confirmed that a new cinder cone is now growing within the depression in the eastern flank of the SEC.[meer...]
