Twitter Web App : savagediana Exactly since about 15 years. I work as a volcanologist, with the Italian National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (#INGVvulcani) on one of the most active and fascinating volcanoes on this planet, #Etna, and with this fulfil my childhood dream every day 😊

Twitter Web App : The 10th paroxysmal eruptive episode at #Etnas Southeast Crater on the morning of 7 March 2021 was rather violent & caused heavy pyroclastic fallout over villages & towns on the E flank (Milo, SantAlfio, Giarre). Photos taken in Passopisciaro (N flank) & Fornazzo (E flank)

Twitter Web App : 5 minutes of #Etna show on 4 March 2021: from the first, failed attempt of a paroxysm in the night to the second successful attempt in the morning. Mostly timelapse (5x), to enhance eruption column dynamics and keep video from being too long.

Twitter Web App : Holley Jordan Pickett i rumori possono essere molto forti, come un tuono continuo, soprattutto nelle aree sottovento. Però più si sta distanti e con il tipico fracasso del traffico siciliano, la voce dell'Etna purtroppo si sente poco.

Twitter Web App : Scenes of #Etnas 4 March 2021 paroxysm: early lava flow from SE Crater & explosion at Voragine crater; new vent at base of SE Crater; ash emission from Voragine & SE Crater; 11 km eruption column at height of paroxysm. Views from home in Tremestieri Etneo

Twitter Web App : Göngu Dóttir _____ 🇮🇸 _____ ( 🇩🇪 ) We define a "paroxysm" a brief, violent eruptive episode (normally just a few hours), most with sustained lava fountains and eruption columns. #Etna's paroxysms often come in sequences, which together might be called "eruptions" (like, the 66 paroxysms in 2000 were one eruption)

Android : Ninth paroxysmal eruptive episode in 16 days at #Etnas Southeast Crater, 4 March 2021. 12 km tall eruption column seen from home in Tremestieri Etneo, 20 km south of the summit of the volcano

Twitter Web App : #Etna is restarting: Strombolian activity at the Southeast Crater announces a new paroxysmal eruptive episode in the making. 2 March 2021

Twitter Web App : #Etnas brief, violent paroxysm on the morning of 28 February 2021 recorded by INGV-Osservatorio Etneo thermal surveillance cameras INGVvulcani

Twitter Web App : Garth Lever We're not thinking that a major lateral collapse is likely to occur in this situation. But during some of the paroxysms of these days, minor portions of the Southeast Crater cone have slid downslope, forming small pyroclastic flows.

Twitter Web App : New, very brief and rather powerful paroxysmal eruptive episode at #Etnas Southeast Crater, 28 February 2021 morning. Sub-Plinian eruption column seen from home in Tremestieri Etneo, 20 km south of Etnas summit

Twitter Web App : Hippy Doug hahaha it's indeed a bit like reliving those moments, when I told the stories about the paroxysms in 2000 on my "Cradle of Volcanology" site, which indeed was a sort of blog before the concept of a blog came up 😁
