A Virtual Tour of Mt Etna
Meeting ID: 890 6219 1641
Mt Etna is Europe’s highest and most active volcano, and magma is constantly grumbling
in its rocky depths. Since February 2021 there has been a series of spectacular eruptions,
from lava fountaining through to paroxysmal explosions generating 10 km-high ash-rich
plumes. In this talk I will take you on a virtual tour of the summit region of Mt Etna, and
explore some of the techniques used by the Etna Volcano Observatory to monitor the
volcano and the hazards it poses to the local population of over a million people.
