Etna: Thermal anomalys detected

At Etna in Sicily strombolian eruptions can be observed today. They originate from the New South East Crater and create a distinct thermal anomaly: MIROVA registers a high thermal radiation with a power of 116 MW. It comes from the tephra deposited in the crater. In the conveyor system, the magma stands high. On a 3 day old satellite image 2 small hotspots in Bocca Nuova were also visible. Another anomaly was found in the Northeast Crater.
