Etna volcano update: Explosion at Bocca Nuova
Понедельник окт 10, 2016 18:42 | АВТОР: T
Thermal image (view from Bronte) of the explosion at Bocca Nuova crater (INGV Catania)
Seismic signal (ESVO station, INGV Catania)
While on excursion in the summit area of Etna today, our guides felt an earthquake at noon. At 15:26, a sudden explosion occurred from the Bocca Nuova crater (the westernmost of the summit vents).
Currently, the nature of the event (phreatic explosion?) is unknown. The thermal webcam from the western side shows an ash plume of a few hundred meters height and a weak hot spot caused by the event.
