Thermal webcam image of the crater area of Stromboli (INGV)
Activity remains elevated, with magma filling the NE crater to the rim and sometimes relatively strong explosions. No significant new overflows have occurred since the last update.
Tuesday, Apr 23, 2013
The small lava flow issuing from the breached NE crater continues, but has not progressed much. Frequent glowing rockfalls descend the Sciara del Fuoco. [more]
Monday, Apr 22, 2013
Magma stands high inside the conduits. A small overflow is occurring from the NE crater. The lava flow reaches about 100 meters length at the moment. Tremor and explosion signals are moderate to elevated. [more]
Saturday, Apr 20, 2013
Activity remains elevated, but the new lava flow is no longer much alimented at the moment. ...
Thursday, Apr 18, 2013
The lava flow continues to be alimented, but effusion rate has apparently dropped and only the upper portion of the flow seems currently active. The seismic signal shows strong eruption tremor and continuous rockfall signals. [more]
Thursday, Apr 18, 2013
The activity continued throughout the night and the lava flow has reached the sea at the base of the Sciara del Fuoco. At the moment, the new flow has decreased but remains weakly active and tremor elevated. [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.
