Integrating puffing and explosions in a general scheme for Strombolian-style activity
Editors’ Highlight—This study of Strombolian-type volcanic activity is based on observations of 35 vent activities from four volcanoes worldwide and thermal infrared videos of 21 of them. The authors explain the different styles of Strombolian eruption, describing the effects of two parameters in particular: the length of the bursting gas pocket with respect to the vent diameter, and the presence and thickness of a high-viscosity layer. This paper represents a step forward in our comprehension of the driving factors of Strombolian eruptive dynamics.
