Etna volcano (Italy), activity update: Bocca Nuova and Voragine unified by collapse
Etna continues its worrying slumber. After an isolated phreatic explosive event in January, the diafragma separating Bocca Nuova crater and the Voragine (the former Central crater) as well as the wall separating the two craters inside Bocca Nuova have mostly collapsed, leaving what is now best described as one single central crater with several pits and vents at considerable depth.
Several VolcanoDiscovery groups visited Etna on various occasions over the past weeks, and found strong degassing taking place from fractures in the walls and the bottoms of the various vents inside the central crater, as well as audible but deep-seated explosive activity inside North-East crater.
