Marsili Seamount vulkaan
submariene vulkaan −450 m / −1,476 ft
Tyrrhenian Sea, Italy, 39.25°N / 14.39°E
Current status: normal or dormant (1 out of 5)
Last update: 26 Mar 2019
Marsili is a large, active submarine volcano in the southeastern central Tyrrhenian Sea, located about 175 kilometers (109 mi) south of Naples. It rises about 3,000 m (9,800 feet) from the sea floor and its peak and crater reach within 450 m (1400 ft) beneath the water surface.
Typical eruption style
A recent study has shown that submarine, explosive eruptions occurred at Marsili in historical times. The volcano has the potential (an is likely) to erupt again in the future. The main hazard from the volcano is tsunami generation if a larger collapse of the unstable volcanic edifice occurs during or after an eruption.

Bromo volcano photos
: Bromo is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. It is the most active vent inside the huge Tengger caldera and erupts every few years.
The term for all fine-grained volcanic products fragmented during explosive eruptions.
Blue flames of burning sulfur
: Ijen volcano in East Java has one of the most impressive sulfur deposits on earth. They are so hot that the sulfur often ignites - a mysterious display at night caught on camera.
Tours to erupting volcanoes
: From time to time, we organize special tours to see volcanoes in eruption. These are often announced only few days or weeks in advance. Find out more!
