Stromboli volcano eruptions:
Persistant (near-constant) activity since at least 2-3000 years. Most recent effusive (lava flow) eruptions from Dec. 2002-July 2003, March 2007, Aug-Oct 2014. Paroxysm 3 July 2019
Typical eruption style:
Small explosive (strombolian) eruptions, typically every 20-30 mins. Intermittently, ca. every 2-20 years, minor effusive eruptions (lava flows); on average 2-5 times per year larger explosions.

Small lava overflow from the NE crater of Stromboli (thermal webcam, INGV Catania)
Activity remains elevated. A small lava overflow has started from the NE crater, accompanied by relatively strong tremor and explosion signals visible on the seismic signal.

Today's seismic signal from Stromboli (ST8 station, INGV)
It seems that activity has shifted a bit from effusive to explosive. The tremor signal has shown an increase today and includes very powerful explosion signals. On the other hand, lava overflows from the NE vent have decreased during the past days.

Webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli with dust from rockfalls on the Sciara (INGV)
An increase in activity has occurred today. Lava overspills wide area of the rims of the NE crater, causing lava overflows and numerous rockfalls descending down the Sciara del Fuoco. ...more

Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli (INGV)
Magma levels inside the conduit of the NE vent remain very high, shown by frequent small overspills. Tremor is elevated and mixed with small to moderate explosion signals.

Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli (INGV)
Tremor remains elevated and small amounts of lava continues to spill over the rims of the NE crater. The big question is when a larger breach will occur and larger amounts of lava can exit to form a flow until the sea...

Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli (INGV)
No lasting new larger lava flows have occurred over the past days, but it is obvious that the craters, in particular the NE vents, are literally "filled to the rim", and often produce small overflows from the crater. A strong tremor signal accompanies this process. ...more

Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli (INGV)
The lava flow is still weakly active, but has decreased considerably in length again. Tremor remains high, suggesting that this phase of increased activity is far from over.

The new lava flow on Stromboli's Sciara del Fuoco this evening
A new lava flow has started from the NE crater and is descending the Sciara del Fuoco. The activity is accompanied by continuous spattering from the northern hornito and strong tremor.

Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli at the moment of an eruption (INGV)
Volcanic tremor has increased during the past 24 hours, but is back to lower values at the moment. All in all, activity levels is elevated, and the magma column inside the conduit is standing high.

Current seismic signal from Stromboli (ST8 station, INGV)
No significant changes in activity and no new lava flows have occurred. The tremor signal fluctuates between low to medium and high levels. Explosion signals are generally relatively weak.
