Future Predictions: this volcano has been going for thousands of years and won't quit anytime soon.
he Stromboli Volcano is located just north of Sicily, Italy, and has given off permanent activity for thousands of years. This
activity results in a number of magmatic quakes per hour.
The Stromboli project was created by Jürg Alean and Roberto Carniel. They installed a seismic station near the summit of
Stromboli to monitor the ground motion of this volcano. The project is dedicated to the studying of "the Recent and ongoing
activity of Stromboli and other volcanoes".
Strombolian Eruption: A type of volcanic eruption characterized by jetting of clots or fountains of fluid basaltic
lava from a central crater.
