Etna summit

Sono l’area centrale dell’attività vulcanica, attraverso loro avviene la persistente attività fumarolica dell’Etna e ad intervalli di tempo più o meno regolari sono sede di eventi esplosivi di varia tipologia ed energia come: attività stromboliane, fontane di lava, espulsione di ostruzioni del condotto, attività freatiche ecc., che modificano continuamente la morfologia, e l’altezza del vulcano. I crateri sommitali attulamente sono quattro, la Voragine e la Bocca NuovaCratere di Nord-Est, ( esiste dal 1911 ed è attualmente il punto più alto dell’Etna 3330 m), e infine il Cratere di Sud-Est.
