MODIS hot spots (summarized during the past 2 days) at Tolbachik (MODIS, Univ. Hawai'i)

Tall lava fountains are visible from the webcam images:
Etna (Sicily, Italy): (23 Feb) The 5th paroxysm of the New SE crater is occurring. Tall lava fountains are erupting from the fissure vent of the New SE crater.

Glow from what is probably a small effusive fissure SE of the base of the cone (right in the picture)
Etna (Sicily, Italy): It seems that a small effusive fissure vent has been active a few 100 m SE of the base of the New SE crater. No further paroxysm has (yet) occurred. ...more [read all]

The characteristic tall tremor peak of Etna's tremor signal
Etna (Sicily, Italy): A 4th paroxysm from the New SE crater has occurred in rapid succession to the previous eruptions during the past 2 days. It will be interesting to see how long Etna will keep up this busy pace. ...more [read all]
