ETNA Tremor graphs

These graphs can be found on the INGV pages. However, the ones I display here are NOT necessarily the same as those displayed on the
INGV Volcanic Tremor

NOTE of caution: Please don't judge the situation just by the hight of spikes/amplitude of the tremor you see in the graphs. ALWAYS check for scale (the numbers on the left).

A single spike of an earthquake (even a small one) takes the entire hight of the graph, thereby relatively "diminishing" the rest of the tremor. As time goes on, the spike of that eq moves to the left, and out of the graph. Once it is gone, suddenly the actual tremor occupies the entire hight of the graph. It looks much bigger now, but has not changed in amplitude.

This is expressed by the scale on the left. Example: The single spike might have been 50 units high, while the tremor was about 5 units. When the spike is gone, the scale will only show up to 5 units at the top of the graph.

There are LOTS of webcams trained on Etna, but, unfortunately, most of them are not working most of the time. Some are only turned on when there is an eruption in progress, some are dead for weeks or months. So, if you want to watch an eruption you are lucky if you get a glimpse of it or two. A quite safe bet are the cams at the INGV, but you have to wait 3 minutes for the next image, which additionally is delivered 10 minutes after its timestamp. And... don't forget: to watch an eruption close up is great fun, but there is also lots of ash & steam about and you might not see a thing even if the cam is working fine. Another nuisance is ice and snow covering the camera lens, which often can not be removed immediately by owners.
Just let's enjoy what we can get! :)
