This view of Stromboli shows the NE tip of the island with the Rina Grande valley at the left. The principal historically active vent of Stromboli lies at the head of the Sciarra del Fuoco, a prominent scarp on the opposite side of the island. Stromboli, the NE-most of the Aeolian Islands, has produced frequent mild explosions throughout much of historical time. Photo by Guiseppina Kysar, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
