Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli volcano (Eolian Islands, Italy): low activity

Monday Oct 10, 2016 18:17 PM | BY: T

The activity at the volcano is currently at comparably low levels. After a short-lived increase in frequency and average size of explosions during September, the typical strombolian activity has again decreased.
When observed during the past week, both the western, central and eastern vents were active, but only produced very small strombolian explosions at intervals of typically 20-30 minutes, ejecting little incandescent material to only a few tens of meters. Moderately large explosions with ejections of more than 50-100 m occurred only sporadically from the eastern vent at intervals of up to several hours.
