Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:
Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): new lava flow on Sciara del Fuoco

The new lava flow on the upper Sciara del Fuoco this evening
Current seismic signal from Stromboli (ST8 station, INGV)
Seismic signal during the morning
A new larger lava flow from the NE vent has started this afternoon to descend the Sciara del Fuoco, accompanied by glowing rockfalls and strong tremor. The eruption was preceded by very large strombolian explosions during the morning.

A late addition - photos of the lava overspills and lava flows on Sciara del Fuoco during the first half of January. [more]
Sunday, Apr 14, 2013
Activity has remained more or less unchanged. Explosions, sometimes strong continue from several vents,and small amounts of viscous lava overspills the rims of the NE crater. [more]
Friday, Apr 12, 2013
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. [more]
Thursday, Apr 11, 2013
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]

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.
