Etna volcano (Sicily, Italy): increasing strombolian activity
Суббота авг 01, 2020 15:19 | АВТОР: MARTIN
Strombolian activity at the New Southeast Crater on 30 July (image: INGV)
INGV reported that the strombolian activity at the New South Crater has been increasing.
Ash plumes reached 14,763 ft (4,500 m)
altitude and drifted SW.
Strombolian activity continues at Voragine Crater with minor ash emissions.
Seismicity remains at fluctuating levels associated with periods of increasing and decreasing tremor.
The seismic station records internal tremor at 2900-3000 m altitude in area of New Southeast Crater.

Monthy earthquake reports
: For each month since July 2012, we publish a summary of quake activity world-wide: find the list of largest quake, a map showing all significant quakes as well as detailed statistics on seismic activity during this time.
Volcano Videos on YouTube
: Our YouTube channel: volcanic activity world-wide shown through videos taken during our volcano tours and expeditions complimented by some time-lapse videos from webcams.
Earthquakes near Volcanoes
: Our world-wide map continuously detects shallow earthquakes near volcanoes. These could be early signs of unrest and often precede eruptions.
