Here are some facts about Mount Etna, the famous volcano: Mount Etna is located on the east coast of the Italian island of Sicily, in the Mediterranean. It is almost 11, feet high, making it the highest mountain in Italy south of the Alps.
It is one of the most active volcanoes in the world. The volcano covers a huge area, of over square miles. About one quarter of the population of the island of Sicily lives on its slopes.
Mount Etna has snow on it for most of the year. The sides of the volcano are also home to a large number of animal species, and there are vineyards and olive groves near the foot of the mountain. The most violent eruption was in March, The mountain erupted lava for several days, which destroyed several nearby villages and the city walls of Catania.
Vulcan was the Roman God of metalworking and fire and the Romans believed his workshop was at the base of the mountain. Some of the lava on the side of Mount Etna isyears old. Because the geological and atmospheric conditions are similar to those on Mars, scientists have tested space robots here.
However, the mineral rich lava is seen as a good thing by nearby farmers, as it makes the soil more fertile.
The volcano has a longer history of written accounts of its eruptions than any other volcano. One of the earliest accounts was by the poet Virgil in his famous book, The Aenid.
Mount Etna is popular with tourists, who climb or ski on the mountain.Datasets and Data repositories (List of lists of lists) This is a LIST of. "lists of lists". Messy presentation to pull together Raw Datasets for my hacks. Suggestions to . Mauna Loa has erupted 33 times since (with other less well-dated eruptions going back to and before).
These historical flows cover km 2 of the volcano's surface. Typically, these eruptions began in the summit caldera, Moku'aweoweo, with a curtain of fire (which is a 1 to 2 km line of lava fountains).
the Southwest Rift Zone has been the source for 25% of the eruptions (covering km 2: of the land), and the summit region has been the site of 38% of the eruptions (many of the latter have remained in the summit caldera and thus covered little land, although others have spilled out into the norwest and northeast quandrants of the volcano).:).
The oldest Mauna Loa eruption in written. Rising gradually to more than 4 km (13, ft) above sea level, Mauna Loa is the largest active volcano on our planet.

Its long submarine flanks descend to the sea floor an additional 5 km (16, ft), and the sea floor in turn is depressed by Mauna Loa's great mass another 8 km (26, ft).
Volcanoes and Volcanology - Volcanoes can be one of the most destructive forces on Earth. It is estimated that some million people live near active volcanoes (Lutgens and Tarbuck, ).

As well as IPCC AR5 WG1 chapter 9, this is also discussed in chapter “This provides evidence that some CMIP5 models have a higher transient response to GHGs and a larger response to other anthropogenic forcings (dominated by the effects of aerosols) than the real world (medium confidence).’.
