Strombolian eruptions are named after the typical eruptive style of Stromboli volcano, in Italy's Aeolian Islands. Strombolian eruptions are characterized by repetitive moderate explosions that eject fragmental material surrounding the vent along with molten lava bombs. The trajectories of individual incandescent bombs form parabolic arcs in time-lapse photographs.
