Strombolian eruptions in 1834 from cones at the summit of Mount Vesuvius eject incandescent material near the end of an eruption that began in 1824. Major effusive phases occurred from August 1831 to December 1832, and from May to June 1833. The climactic effusive-explosive eruptions took place August 22-September 2, 1834.
