Roundup of Global Volcanic Activity

Stromboli (Eolian Islands, Italy): The activity of the volcano has increased considerably since about a week ago and is now again at moderate to high levels, similar sometimes to many periods prior to the 2014 effusive eruption. Several vents are active in the eastern, central and western crater, the most active one being the eastern vent (towards Stromboli village). When observed during the past days, we saw strombolian explosions at intervals of 15-20 minutes average, some ejecting incandescent bombs to more than 200-250 m height.
