The VolcanoDiscovery team is now on Stromboli on the Grand Tour of Italy. Activity at the summit craters is at low to medium levels with a large fluctuation on a scale of several hours to days.


During the morning of the 6th of July (observation from the boat), no explosions were registered for more than 1,5 hours, while several medium eruptions occurred during about 2 hours observation on the evening of the same day. At least 3 vents are active, at the E, Central and W vents inside the crater, typiclaly throwing blocks and blombs to about 100 m height. During the afternoon / evening of 7 July, only two medium-sized explosions took place from the E vent between 5 and 7pm, and none except a very small event from the E vent was observed between 7 and 10pm.
