Etna volcano update: Activity decreases
Monday Aug 29, 2016 09:04 AM | DOOR: T
Steam/ash plume from Etna's Voragine this morning
Ash emission from the New SE crater on Friday
Over the past weeks, the volcano's activity (at Voragine and the New SE crater) has generally decreased and tremor levels are currently low.
While not entirely stopped, the emissions of hot incandescent gasses and ash, along with weak strombolian activity from the new vent in the Voragine crater have become less pronounced. Similarly, the sporadic ash emissions from the New SE, observed intermittently until at least Saturday, have ceased or become even rarer.
This could rapidly change, however.

visited the summit region of Etna yesterday and observed a new active pit crater, about 20-30 m wide, located in the eastern inner wall of the Voragine crater. ...
Tuesday, Aug 09, 2016
Weak strombolian activity continues inside the Voragina summit crater, which produces a tall steam column currently drifting into southerly directions when we observed it this morning during a helicopter overflight as part of a tour on Etna
Sunday, Aug 07, 2016
Weak strombolian activity has started from the Voragine crater and it is currently visible from the webcams. ...
Friday, Aug 05, 2016

Thursday, Jul 21, 2016
The volcano remains calm at the surface but is restless. Its internal seismic activity continues to be higher than normal and SO2 gas emissions have increased a bit recently (to approx. 7,000 tons/day), which could indicate the influx of fresh magma. ...
