Etna, the emission of ash intensifies

sicily-incentives-etna-eruption sicily-incentives-etna-eruption The eruptive cloud reaches a height of about 4.5 kilometers above sea level in the east / north-east direction. Currently there is no reported ash fall in the inhabited centers of the area   sicily-incentives-etna-eruption The National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanologyn of Catania announces that starting from 11:30 the emission of ash from the new SE crater has gradually intensified.  ​_ This is producing an eruptive cloud that reaches a height of about 4, 5 kilometers above sea level in an east / north-east direction. Currently there is no reported ash fall in the inhabited centers of the Etna area. As regards the temporal trend of the average amplitude of the volcanic tremor, it continues to show marked fluctuations in amplitude which overall define a substantially stationary trend which is maintained mainly in the interval of the average values.   The location of the source of the tremor is located near the area of ​​the SE Crater / New Southeast Crater, at a depth of about 2900-3000 meters above the mean sea level. sicily-incentives-etna-eruption From the point of view of infrasonic activity, no significant changes were reported.

Etna: latest activity on the top craters

Sicily Incentives Etna, still in the midst of its Strombolian activity, continues to show off. For several days, blasts of ash have poured over the whole Etna area. Just a few hours ago, the volcano made a big voice again, giving the spectators yet another – but still magnificent – natural spectacle.     Sicily Incentives ETNA Sicily’s greatest natural attraction is also its highest mountain. To the ancient Greeks, Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire, and the home of the one-eyed monster known as the Cyclops. At approximately 3350 meters, it is €pe’s highest active volcano. The height of its summit changes with each eruption, and over the centuries a few lava flows have reached the coast. Over 1200 square meters of Etna’s surface is covered with solidified lava. Etna offers skiing in the Winter months and breathtaking hikes in the woods during the Summer. There are also a number of smaller peaks on the slopes of Etna, and some interesting caverns. Since Etna is a strato volcano , with relatively cool lava temperatures and numerous openings (vents), nobody ever knows precisely where on its vast surface the next eruption will be. Sicily Incentives Etna’s […]

Sicily DMC Incentives: Mount Etna: new fantastic lava flow shoot from drone

Sicily DMC Incentives – Mount Etna has given very nice activity, and quite varied (Strombolian activity from the “saddle vent” between old and new Southeast Crater cones, sporadic emissions of brown ash from the New Southeast Crater). Sicily DMC Incentives – Mount Etna The lava flow has advanced not much more than 1 km from the crater and during the day was advancing slowly toward south-southwest.

Mount Etna Makes Stunning Eruption In Sicily | TIME

Lava Flows: Mount Etna the highest volcano in Europe erupts Intense Strombolian activity and lava flow emission from the active vent on top of Etna’s Southeast Crater Mount Etna has erupted for the first time in 2017, leaping into action on Monday evening (February 27) shooting bright red lava into the night sky. The highest active volcano in Europe Mount Etna began to erupt on the island of Sicily, on Monday. The volcano, which lies between the cities of Messina and Catania, can be seen spewing fountains of lava which reportedly exceeded several hundred meters high. Mount Etna has given very nice activity, and quite varied (Strombolian activity from the “saddle vent” between old and new Southeast Crater cones, sporadic emissions of brown ash from the New Southeast Crater). The lava flow has advanced not much more than 1 km from the crater and during the day was advancing slowly toward south-southwest. A conspicuous cone is growing around the active vent which is now the highest peak of the Southeast Crater, but probably still somewhat lower than Etna’s highest point, the Northeast Crater (3329 m).
