Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): No major changes have occurred at the volcano: Lava effusion continues from the 650 m vent and feeds active lava flows on the upper Sciara del Fuoco. From the lava flow fronts, incandescent blocks detach and roll down the slope. Tremor has decreased to the lowest values measured during the past months and strombolian activity at the summit craters has almost disappeared.

Bardarbunga (Iceland): The eruption continues with no significant changes. Earthquakes continue to be intense under the Bárðarbunga caldera. The largest today was a magnitude 5.3 event at 01:05 local time under the southwestern rim. Two quakes over 4 occurred at the caldera, an M4.6 at 17:34 yesterday and an M4.3 at 05:48 this morning, as well as a few over 3 in size. A dozen earthquakes were detected in the dike, all small.

Kilauea (Hawai’i): After crossing Apaʻa Street and the cemetery, lava flows continue to advance towards the inhabited main part of Pahoa.
