  Italy´s famed volcano Mt. Etna has erupted for the twelfth time this year, spewing lava and ash into the upper atmosphere, according to an Associated Press report. Italy´s Civil Protection Agency says the nation´s geophysics and volcanology institute on Monday registered increased explosive activity by Etna, eight days after the latest eruption began, spewing out a significant amount of ash in a southeast direction early in the day but that the eruption tapered off...

Mount Etna volcano on the island of Sicily erupted during the weekend, shooting flames 820-feet in the air and spewing lava down its slopes. Some are concerned about the effects the eruption will have on air travel, but the winds were blowing the ash away from the airport and no flights had been cancelled. According to the Italian Institute of Volcanology, the volcanic activity started on Saturday morning and continued through the day and overnight into Sunday. This is the fourth and the...

Internationally renowned geophysicist Dr Wouter Schellart has developed the first dynamic model to explain the mystery of the largest and most fascinating volcano in Europe, Mount Etna. Dr Schellart's results from fluid dynamic models provide an alternative explanation for the existence of Mount Etna, its geological environment and evolution, as well as volcanism in the surrounding region. His theory suggests that Mount Etna is not directly the result of tectonic plate boundary activity, but...

Using radar images acquired by ESA satellites from 1992 to 2006, scientists have for the first time been able to monitor the long-term behavior of Mt. Etna, Europe's highest and most active volcano. This unprecedented time series of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) observations from ESA's ERS-1, ERS-2 and Envisat satellites provided crucial information for understanding how the volcano's surface deformed during the rise, storage and eruption of magma. Changes in surface deformation, such as...

A new development in which scientists have successfully recreated the conditions of an erupting volcano may shed light on new methods of predicting eruptions. Active volcanoes produce a mix of seismic signals or small earthquakes that can indicate an eruption, but interpreting their significance is notoriously difficult. Researchers Philip Benson of University College London and colleagues took rock from Sicily's Mount Etna found that small-scale simulations of volcanic activity could be...

By Phil Stewart ROME (Reuters) - An underwater volcano with a base larger than Washington D.C. has been discovered just off the shores of Sicily, a scientist with Italy's National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology said on Thursday. The volcanic structure, which incorporates peaks previously thought to be separate volcanoes, was named Empedocles after the Greek philosopher who named the four classic elements of earth, air, fire and water. Legend has it that the philosopher died...
