Caption: Stromboli volcano. Illustration of explorers in a crater on Mount Stromboli whilst an eruption occurs in a neighbouring crater. Mount Stromboli has been in almost continuous eruption for 2000 years. Small explosions of lava occur every 15 to 30 minutes. These are easily visible at night to passing ships and have earned Stromboli the name of "Lighthouse of the Mediterranean". Larger eruptions, including lava flows, take place every several years. This ejection of material has made Stromboli 926 metres high, forming an island of 14 square km in the Tyrrhenian Sea west of Italy. Image made by Luigi Mater to record the surveys of Sir Robert Ainslie in 1810.
