The ongoing eruption at Etna, seen from Radiostudio 7 webcam (http://www.radiostudio7.it) located at Belvedere
A new eruptive episode is in progress at the New SE crater of Etna today. Starting this morning, tremor has been rising steeply and at the time of writing, the first strombolian explosions, or even small lava fountains, and perhaps already a small lava flow can be seen emerging from the SE-trending fissure cutting through the cone. All signs point towards that this is going to be the long-awaited 18th paroxysm of the New SE crater in 2011, following the previous one on 23 Oct after 23 days, the longest-so-far interval since July.
A little bit later, the lava flow already has reached the slope into Valle del Bove and lava fountains are seen from the summit vent as well.
Around 1pm, a dark column of tephra is rising above the vent (Etna Trekking webcam: www.guide-etna.com/webcam/)

Another paroxysmal eruption (the 17th in 2011) is in progress at Etna's New SE crater at the time of writing. The volcanic tremor recorded by INGV has risen sharply to 50 times above background levels, and strong strombolian activity and/or lava fountains, as well as a lava flow into the Valle del Bove are visible from various webcams. ...БОЛЬШЕ

The lava fountains from the lower part of the SE fissure at the beginning of the 16th paroxysm of Etna's New SE crater, ca. 15h30, 8 Oct 2011
Following 10 days of quiet, a new paroxysmal eruption (nr 16 in 2011) took place from the New SE crater of Etna volcano during the afternoon of 8 October 2011. ...БОЛЬШЕ

lava flows from the 15th paroxysm of the New SE crater of Etna volcano (webcam image from http://www.radiostudio7.it/webcam.asp)
The 15th paroxysm of Etna's New SE crater occurred in the evening of 28 Sep, a few days earlier than what statistically had been expected (based on thze steady increasing intervals between the past similar events). ...БОЛЬШЕ

Tremor measured by INGV Catania during the 14th paroxysm
The 14th paroxysm of Etna's New SE crater is in progress at the time of writing. Bad weather conditions hide the eruption, but the seismic signals of INGV Catania show that a major eruptive episode is occurring. Since 9am, volcanic tremor has been gradually increasing to (at the moment) 30+ times background levels, and is still rising. Most likely, lava fountains are being ejected from vents inside the crater and lava flows descending into Valle del Bove if the new episode is similar to the previous ones. ...БОЛЬШЕ

The 13th paroxysm from Etna's New SE crater occurred this morning between ca. 8 and 10am, following a steep increase in tremor and a short period of rapidply increasing strombolian activity from several vents inside the new crater. The eruption intensified into lava fountains generating a tall ash plume drifting SSE and showering a narrow sector south of Etna with ash. ...БОЛЬШЕ

Another powerful eruption with an intense peak activity of tall lava fountains - a so-called paroxysm - occurred at Etna volcano's New SE crater earlier today. This marks the 12th event of the series in 2011 so far. The main phase of the eruption lasted between around 5 and 7 am local time. ...БОЛЬШЕ

Tremor amplitude at 9h40 local time...
The 11st paroxysm of Etna's New SE crater is taking place. Strombolian activity and increased degassing started late during the night and early morning. The activity increased into lava fountains producing a tall ash column probably between 8 and 9 am. A lava flow is emitted that descends into the Valle del Bove.

Beginning lava fountains at Etna (RadioStudio7 webcam)
The 10th paroxysm of the New SE crater at Etna volcano is in progress. Strombolian activity as well as tremor amplitude increased sharply at around 9am local time and are now (ca. 10 am local time) becoming lava fountains.

Strombolian activity has restarted at the "New SE crater" of Etna volcano, which means that, most likely, the 10th paroxysm is under way - IF the volcano behaves as during the past 9 episodes, where strombolian activity increased to violent lava fountain eruptions within 12-72 hours after the onset of such strombolian activity. ...БОЛЬШЕ

Etna trekking tour
: A tour entirely dedicated to Etna, the most active volcano in Europe. Spend 6 full days on Etna and get good chances to see eruptive activity.
: A third tectonic setting where volcanism occurs is believed to be the result of mantle plumes and not directly related to plate boundaries. So called hot spot volcanoes fall into this category.

: One of the most impressive lava dome eruptions in recent years. A new dome formed in the crater lake of Kelut volcano (East Java) in late 2007. Enjoy some unique pictures.
Ijen volcano photos
: Ijen volcano in East Java is famous for its turquoise acid crater lake and the large sulfur deposits that are being mined by local workers. At night, the scene is illuminated by ghostly blue flames, as sulfur ignites.
