Stromboli is one of the few volcanoes on earth displaying continuous eruptive activity over a period longer than a few years or decades. Its historic record goes back to more than 2500 years before present, and there is evidence that its persistent activity has been going on for as long as 5000 years. Most of this activity is of a very moderate size, consisting of brief and small bursts of glowing lava fragments to heights of rarely more than 150 m above the vents. Occasionally, there are periods of stronger, more continuous activity, with fountaining lasting several hours
