Stromboli Volcano Photos / Videos
- Spectacular activity in early December 2003 -
Thanks to A. Fisher and R. Schulz, the following photos and short videoclips showing the strong activity of Stromboli's NE-crater during early December 2003 have become available on decadevolcano.net. A short report about the circumstances under which these photos/videos were taken is also available on the Stromboli updates pages (December 2003).
7 December 2003: photos
Stromboli's NE crater in activity during late evening of 8 Dec. 2003. Note
the liquid magma bubble exploding essentially above the vent exit
in the crater on the first photo.
into erupting NE crater. Note mild continuous spattering before and after
the main explosion, indicating a very high level of magma. - The situation
is just like during mid-late 2002, when this led to a flank eruption. Could
this repeat itself in the near future?

arrival of the sound wave is slightly delayed due to the distance.
