This site is part of a volcanology research project and a project in teaching Earth Sciences. Its primary goal is to spread volcanological data and research results, mainly about Stromboli, an island volcano in Italy. The creators would like to give users the feeling of (almost) being part of on-going research on this beautiful and permanently active Italian volcano. Volcanic activity on the island is transmitted via radio and telephone links from the local seismic station, analyzed and posted on the site. Also included are live webcams, photos, videos, virtual fieldtrips, and teaching materials.
