Geology site description:

Stromboli Island is known for its very active volcano erupting more or less continuously since 2000 years ago. Stromboli is a tephra volcano. Due to the tough magma, volcanic cinders and bombs are thrown into the air. Especially at night, the glowing lava can be seen very well. The top of the volcano is 926 meters high.
