Short-lived eruptions that throw out blocks and bombs. Lava flows also occur.
Derived from the volcano Stromboli, these eruptions, typically intermittent and of short duration, throw out blocks, bombs and lava flows. Stromboli is one of the Aeolian Islands north of Sicily and has been almost continuously in eruption for at least the past 2,400 years.
A type of volcanic eruption characterized by jetting of clots or fountains of fluid basaltic lava from a central crater.
Volcanic eruption characterised by small explosive eruptions due do the viscous (thick) nature of the lava.
Strombolian eruptions are relatively low-level volcanic eruptions, named after the Italian volcano named Stromboli, where such eruptions consist of ejection of incandescent cinder, lapilli and lava bombs to altitudes of tens to hundreds of meters. They are small to medium in volume, with sporadic violence.
