Climbing Stromboli volcano
: Stromboli provides one of the most remarkable opportunities to watch volcanic eruptions from close: a natural ridge located 150 m above the active vents. A classic and all-time favorite tour by anyone interested in seeing active volcanoes!
stratovolcano 926 m
Eolian Islands, Italy, 38.79°N / 15.21°E
(4 out of 5)
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.

On 22 November, Stromboli emitted a 3 KM high steam plume. The INGV stated that on 22 November, at 13:17 (GMT) a large seismic signal associated with an explosion occurred. The explosion was around 7 times higher than an average explosion. The explosion was followed by 10 minutes of high seismicity.
The current storm over the Tyrrhenian Sea is probably causing the elevated amplitudes visible in the seismic recordings. ... read all
Judging from the current seismograms, activity at the volcano seems to be elevated today with a possibly stronger tremor signal. Due to bad weather, no visible observations are available. read all
Activity remains at similar low to intermediate levels as during the past weeks. Explosions are relatively frequent, but mostly small. ... read all
