Geological history

Volcanic activity first took place at Etna about half a million years ago, with eruptions occurring beneath the sea off the ancient coastline of Sicily.[9] About 300,000 years ago, volcanism began occurring to the southwest of the summit (centre top of volcano) then, before activity moved towards the present centre 170,000 years ago. Eruptions at this time built up the first major volcanic edifice, forming a stratovolcano in alternating explosive and effusive eruptions. The growth of the mountain was occasionally interrupted by major eruptions, leading to the collapse of the summit to form calderas.

From about 35,000 to 15,000 years ago, Etna experienced some highly explosive eruptions, generating large pyroclastic flows, which left extensive ignimbrite deposits. Ash from these eruptions has been found as far away as Rome, 800 km (497 mi) to the north.

Thousands of years ago, the eastern flank of the mountain experienced a catastrophic collapse, generating an enormous landslide in an event similar to that seen in the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. The landslide left a large depression in the side of the volcano, known as 'Valle del Bove' (Valley of the Ox). Research published in 2006 suggested this occurred around 8000 years ago, and caused a huge tsunami, which left its mark in several places in the eastern Mediterranean. It may have been the reason the settlement of Atlit Yam (Israel), now below sea level, was suddenly abandoned around that time.[10]

The steep walls of the valley have suffered subsequent collapses on numerous occasions. The strata exposed in the valley walls provide an important and easily accessible record of Etna's eruptive history.

The most recent collapse event at the summit of Etna is thought to have occurred about 2,000 years ago, forming what is known as the Piano Caldera. This caldera has been almost entirely filled by subsequent lava eruptions, but is still visible as a distinct break in the slope of the mountain near the base of the present-day summit cone.
Mount Etna is one of the 16 Decade Volcanoes.

[edit] Historical eruptions

Eruptions of Etna follow a variety of patterns. Most occur at the summit, where there are currently (as of 2008) six distinct craters—the Northeast Crater, the Voragine, the Bocca Nuova, and the Southeast Crater. Other eruptions occur on the flanks, which have more than 300 vents ranging in size from small holes in the ground to large craters hundreds of metres across. Summit eruptions can be highly explosive and spectacular, but rarely threaten the inhabited areas around the volcano. In contrast, flank eruptions can occur down to a few hundred metres altitude, close to or even well within the populated areas. Numerous villages and small towns lie around or on cones of past flank eruptions. Since the year AD 1600, at least 60 flank eruptions and countless summit eruptions have occurred; nearly half of these have happened since the start of the 20th century, and since 2000, Etna has had four flank eruptions—in 2001, 2002–2003, 2004–2005, and 2008-2009. Summit eruptions occurred in 2006, 2007–2008, January–April 2012, and again in July–October 2012

The first known record of eruption at Etna is that of Diodorus Siculus.

The Roman poet Virgil gave what was probably a first-hand description of an eruption in the Aeneid:

A spreading bay is there, impregnable To all invading storms; and Aetna's throat With roar of frightful ruin thunders nigh. Now to the realm of light it lifts a cloud Of pitch-black, whirling smoke, and fiery dust, Shooting out globes of flame, with monster tongues That lick the stars; now huge crags of itself, Out of the bowels of the mountain torn, Its maw disgorges, while the molten rock Rolls screaming skyward; from the nether deep The fathomless abyss makes ebb and flow.
— Virgil, Aeneid, edition of Theodore C. Williams, ca. 1908 [lines 569–579]

Portus ab accessu ventorum immotus et ingens ipse; sed horrificis iuxta tonat Aetna ruinis; interdumque atram prorumpit ad aethera nubem, turbine fumantem piceo et candente favilla, attollitque globos flammarum et sidera lambit; interdum scopulos avolsaque viscera montis erigit eructans, liquefactaque saxa sub auras cum gemitu glomerat, fundoque exaestuat imo.
— The same, in Virgil's Latin/

In 396 BC, an eruption of Etna reportedly thwarted the Carthaginians in their attempt to advance on Syracuse during the Second Sicilian War.

A particularly violent explosive (Plinian) summit eruption occurred in 122 BC, and caused heavy tephra falls to the southeast, including the town of Catania, where many roofs collapsed.[11] To help with reconstruction after the devastating effects of the eruption, the Roman government exempted the population of Catania from paying taxes for ten years.

During the first 1500 years AD, many eruptions have gone unreported (or records have been lost); among the more significant are: (1) an eruption in about 1030 AD near Monte Ilice on the lower southeast flank, which produced a lava flow that travelled about 10 km, reaching the sea north of Acireale; the villages of Santa Tecla and Stazzo are built on the broad delta built by this lava flow into the sea; (2) an eruption in about 1160 (or 1224), from a fissure at only 350–450 m (1,148–1,476 ft) elevation on the south-southeast flank near the village of Mascalucia, whose lava flow reached the sea just to the north of Catania, in the area now occupied by the portion of the city named Ognina.[citation needed]

Etna's most destructive eruption since 122 BC started on 11 March 1669 and produced lava flows that destroyed at least 10 villages on its southern flank before reaching the city walls of the town of Catania five weeks later, on 15 April. The lava was largely diverted by these walls into the sea to the south of the city, filling the harbour of Catania. A small portion of lava eventually broke through a fragile section of the city walls on the western side of Catania and destroyed a few buildings before stopping in the rear of the Benedictine monastery, without reaching the centre of the town. Contrary to widespread reports of up to 15,000 (or even 20,000) human fatalities caused by the lava,[12] contemporaneous accounts written both in Italian and English mention no deaths related to the 1669 eruption (but give very precise figures of the number of buildings destroyed, the area of cultivated land lost, and the economic damage), so it can be safely assumed that the enormous number of fatalities often picked up also by the news media must be a confusion with the earthquake that devastated southeast Sicily (including Catania) 24 years later, in 1693. A study on the damage and fatalities caused by eruptions of Etna in historical times reveals that only 77 human deaths are attributable with certainty to eruptions of Etna, most recently in 1987 when two tourists were killed by a sudden explosion near the summit.[13]

And his impressive description of event:

"She did it again, and this time it was a gift for all of us who live near Etna - it was dinner time on a Saturday night, visibility was relatively good (except for clouds drifting across Etna's summit most of the time), it was incredibly powerful and one of the tallest lava fountains we've seen among the many dozens of similar events in the past 15 years. I'd give it a good 800 m height above the crater (of course, again the New Southeast Crater, which already had made four paroxysms during the past five days). At the end, it got really loud, and then, in a matter of a couple of minutes, the whole huge fountain disappeared altogether, and the latest episode of lava fountaining at Etna's New Southeast Crater was history.

Here's the view from near the little village of Pisano, not far from Zafferana and Santa Venerina, on the southeast flank of Etna, during the climax of the paroxysm at about 18:45 h GMT (=local time -1). Note how the fountain is absolutely vertical for much of its height, in spite of a strong wind blowing, which bent the top of the fountain northeastward and carried all the loose material, ash and scoriae, into that direction. For some time the immense jet of gas and molten rock was even inclined AGAINST the wind.

Anyone doubt that this is absolutely the most awesome, beautiful and marvellous volcano on this planet? "

ok I'm back home and going through my photos and video ... The fountain was brief like nearly all events of this kind, and ended rather abruptly, in like 2 minutes from intense fountaining to almost zero, which is something quite common (there are also descriptions of the same happening during Kilauea's 1959 Kilauea Iki eruption). Very loud noise at the end, almost the best part of it. It was quite tall, I'd say up to 800 m or so, which we haven't seen during the previous four paroxysms. It even shot up obliquely AGAINST the very strong wind. Tells you something about the energy that is released in such an event. Much less lava this time. Some photos and video will be up later this evening ...

...Within the Pu`u `O`o crater, the northeast spatter cone, now an open lava lake, sporadically overflowed lava onto the crater floor. The tiltmeter on the north flank of Pu`u `O`o cone recorded very weak deflation that was overwhelmed by rain-induced increases after 5:30 am this morning. Seismic tremor levels near Pu`u `O`o remained low. The most recent (preliminary) sulfur dioxide emission rate measurement was 300 tonnes/day on February 21, 2013, from all east rift zone sources; these values have typically been between 200 and 300 t/d from November through January and 300-400 t/d so far in February.
Outside the crater and across the northeast flank of Pu`u `O`o cone, multiple lava flow lobes, informally called the Kahauale`a flow, continued to be active on the northeast flank of Pu`u `O`o and on older flows north of Pu`u Kahauale`a to the base of the 2007 perched channel (visible in Pu`u `O`o East Thermal and North Webcams); at the base of the perched channel, the flow front split with the strongest activity going to the northeast and a small amount of lava going to the southwest.

An excellent story of how and why during the eruptions of lava fountains formed

[link to www.wired.com]
Boris Behncke 3 days ago
...these episodes are the result of the periodic foaming of magma in the conduit, even if not much new magma is furnished from depth. It's the gas that does the trick mostly. Gas is originally dissolved in the magma (like carbon dioxide in a bottle of sparkling water, as long as it's under pressure you don't see it because it is actually *part* of the water), and as the magma rises, the gas decompresses and separates from the molten rock, forming bubbles. These bubbles tend to rise faster than the surrounding magma and accumulate in the upper part of the magma column, which is capped by more viscous, cooler or even solid magma, so much of the gas don't escape. Instead, the bubbles become more and more and coalesce, requiring more and more space, and the result is that a sort of magma "foam" forms, which then rapidly expands, letting the gas and a minor fraction of magma escape. And that's what makes a lava fountain. The magma foam comes out as scoriae (or, in more silica-rich, highly explosive eruptions, as pumice), but its proportion relative to the gas escaping simultaneously is vanishingly small. So if you think of those impressive fountains of liquid lava and towering columns of dark ash, consider what immense quantities of gas (foremost, water vapor, and then also some good quantities of carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide) are released in such events!

Thus, now happens already fifth eruption for 4 days.
Possible , we are moving to the level of Etna activity similar on 2000 year , wich accounts, as i remember, 66 eruptions.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35019861


This is not quite correct info, and here is a comparison of the current activity of Etna with 2000 year made by expert

[link to www.wired.com]
Boris Behncke Holger_Alberta • 3 days ago
This is not the first time that Etna is in such a frenzy. In the year 2000, the "big brother" of the New Southeast Crater, then a healthy youngster (I'm speaking of the old Southeast Crater), awoke after a few months of quiescence on 26 January and made its first paroxysm in a series that would eventually count 66 (sixty-six) events by late-August. At first, the paroxysms came at intervals of a couple days: 26 January, 29 January, 1 February ... and then the thing accelerated in a bewildering manner. By the end of February 2000 the count stood at 38, some days had seen up to three paroxysms. So indeed, what is going on now is not all that exceptional.

One difference, though, there is. The lava fountains (paroxysms) of 2000 rarely lasted longer than 10-15 minutes each time. Those of 2011-2012 and again now each last some 45-60 minutes, so they are indeed bigger. This is quite evident from the fact that the cone of the New Southeast Crater has grown faster than its "big brother", and it seems it is vigorously growing again with the new paroxysms.

that is an eruption underwater, or geothermal or something.

on second thought though, looking at GE, it seems there is an estuary there, so maybe a glacier flood off the big glacier is going on?

I think both explanations well, but as yet there are no additional data is difficult to give preference to any of them.
purely speculative - I would have preferred the first explanation, that is, an underwater eruption.
Why?

First, a very pretty spot, and much like the what we have seen for a long time near El Hierroohyeah

Secondly, I think that we are not seeing enough volcanic activity under the glacier in the surrounding areas (tremor, and so on),
so you can expect the melting of large volumes.

Third, all known volcanoes there are far enough away from the source of stain,
and in addition, well-defined estuaries to collect such large amounts of melted water I do not see.

Well, except that there is some new crack was formed? scheming

so while I would consider rather the first option (unless, of course, rule out any industrial discharges?)

No it's not as gigantic as July 98 and September 99 (that was the Voragine, and the Voragine is another league still), but it certainly plays in the upper range of what we've seen from the Southeast Crater over the years :-D

.....or perhaps to phrase the question more simply: is the gas content of the magma entering the system more or less constant or does it vary? And does this variation explain the different phases or, conversely, are the phases merely a variation due to the eruption dynamics (foaming/degassing -> effusive activity).

excellent question!

extremely interesting green stain observed in sea off the coast of Iceland just north of the eastern fjords

Volcano Status: Holocene?
Last Known Eruption: Unknown
he massive stratovolcano of Mount Natib, at the northern end of the Bataan Peninsula, is truncated by a 6 x 7 km caldera. The latest dated eruptive products are 69,000 +/- 27,000 years old (Ebasco Services 1977), but sampling is not in sufficient detail to determine the date of the latest eruptions...

it's a scary area. A few years back I was monitoring weird seismic signals being picked up on UK seismic servers. even had a thread going about them, and what I noticed was activity in THIS area would kick start those signals. I became convinced something massive was going on here

since then though, so many areas have started playing up, it's hard to know where the REAL fun will start
