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.

The level of activity at the volcano remains very high, with little significant changes during the past days:
Strong degassing and strombolian explosions occur from several vents at average intervals of approx. 2 minutes (yesterday, the average was 28 events per hour).
The strongest originate from the Central / SW cluster of vents, which eject glowing lava scoria to up to 300 m high. Spattering (near-constant, pulsating degassing with mild lava ejections) mostly from the NE vents reached 150 m ejection height.
The lava flows in the SW area of the Sciara del Fuoco continue to be active, but confined to the upper slopes, but with frequent rockfalls tumbling down to the shore.
Tremor has been fluctuating between high and very high levels.
Staff of the INGV Catania documented the crater morphology during an overflight on 23 Aug (s. picture attached). For those familiar with the volcano before the paroxysm on 3 July, it is impressive to see how much the vents (including new ones) have changed their surface appearance. Due to the ongoing intense strombolian activity, several cinder cones have now been growing rapidly inside the crater terrace.
