Current seismic signal from Stromboli (ST8 station, INGV)
Activity remains elevated. Lava continues to overspill from the lips of the NE crater, showing that the magma column stands high inside the conduit. Frequent strombolian explosions are reaching heights of 2-300 m and the tremor signal is strong again today.

Yesterday evening's lava flow has once again beeen very short-lived. Activity (effusion rate) sharply dropped late in the evening and today, only very small amounts of lava are still overspilling from the NE crater rim. Tremor and rockfall signals are much weaker as well. [more]
Wednesday, Apr 10, 2013
A strong increase of activity occurred this afternoon. A relatively large, sustained lava flow has started to erupt from the breached NE cone and descend the Sciara del Fuoco. The process is accompanied by ongoing strong strombolian eruptions, mainly from the same NE vent, and strong continuous tremor. ... [more]
Monday, Apr 08, 2013
No significant changes have occurred recently. The seismic signal shows medium tremor levels with phases of medium to high values, and there are frequent (about 10 per hour), sometimes quite powerful strombolian explosions from the various active vents. Small amounts of lava sometimes overspill from the NE vent. [more]
Thursday, Apr 04, 2013
Seismic activity remains elevated and accompanies strong explosions, mainly from the NE vent. No recent lava overflows occurred. [more]
Tuesday, Apr 02, 2013
Tremor and explosion signals have further increased today, but no significant new lava overflows have occurred. [more]

Top 20 quakes in 2016
: Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones.
See the top 20 list of largest quakes in 2016 with this map.
: 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.
