Strombolian Eruption 

Volcano Learning zone > Volcano Glossary

Stromblian eruption of Stromboli USGSStrombolian eruptions are characterised by the intermittent explosion or fountaining of basaltic lava from a single vent or crater. Each episode is caused by the release of volcanic gases, and they typically occur every few minutes or so, sometimes rhythmically and sometimes irregularly. The lava fragments generally consist of partially molten volcanic bombs that become rounded as they fly through the air. Stromboli in the aeolain islands of Italy is one of the worlds most reliable and cointinually active volcanoes- worth the walk!
