Etna volcano updates and eruption news:
Etna volcano (Italy), eruption update: decreasing activity
Понедельник май 19, 2008 08:58 |
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.
On the other hand, it seems likely that this extremely short eruption is only a precursor to another one following in the near future, in particular when one takes the intense recent events of ground fracturing and seismic activity into account.
On May 14, 5 of the originally ca. 15 active vents on the originally ca. 600 m long fissure (personal observations by Rosario) were still active. On May 15, only 3 of them and on May 16-17, spattering and lava emission were already very low. On May 17, some powerful ash emissions, perhaps related to internal collapse events were observed from the pit crater at the E base of the SE cone.

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. читать все

, 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. ... читать все

Etna is back erupting. Since 15 August 2007, the SE crater has been showing weak explosive activity from the vent in the collapse pit on the E falnk of the SE cone. The activity consits mainly of deep-seated strombolian explosions occurring at irregular intervals of several minutes or more, producing dark to brown ash plumes with some fresh material. ... читать все
