Etna (Sicily, Italy): (13 Apr) Volcanic Ash Advisory Center Toulouse (VAAC) issued the following report: STROMBOLIANS EXPLOSIONS OCCUR BUT NO SIGNIFIANT ASH EMISSION IS DETECTED. ...14 Apr: After 48 hours of pause since the previous, short-lived eruptive episode, a new effusive eruptive phase began last evening, involving 3 vents. Tremor started to rise from 20:00 local time; strong glow started to appear at the summit vent of the new SE cone on top of the crater complex shortly after 22:00 local time, suggesting the time when new magma arrived near the surface. A phase of weak strombolian-type explosions followed from this vent. ... [read more] ... [show less] Starting at 22:27, lava flows started to appear: probably first from the summit vent, but immediately followed by the opening and stronger lava effusion from the from the vent at the southern base of the crater complex (which had been the site of the previous eruptions in March and early April). It seems that shortly after, a third effusive vent opened about half way between the other two vents on the upper slope of the SE crater complex, also feeding a lava flow.
Etna (Sicily, Italy): The lava flow effusion seems to have decreased strongly or stopped over night. Dough and Emanuela who climbed the area of the vent yesterday afternoon were lucky to still see beautiful activity with lava flowing inside the main channel near the vent. [link to photos] ...
Nyamuragira volcano photos: Africa's version of Mauna Loa, Nyamuragira (or Nyamulagira) is a massive basaltic shield volcano neighboring Nyiragongo. It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and has voluminous eruptions every few years.
Igneous or magmatic rocks: The most primitive rock type forms when magma (molten rock) solidifies - either inside the earth (plutonic rocks) or during volcanic eruptions (volcanic rocks). A short overview.
Ethiopia and the Danakil: Ethiopia is a very diverse and beautiful country. Thanks to our numerous expeditions to Erta Ale and Dallol and beyond, we have an extensive collection of images showing the volcano's lava lake, the desert, the colorful hot springs of Dallol, the vast salt lakes, camel caravans and more.
