Yes it is. I learned in school that it is.
is mount etna higher than ben nevis
Mt. Etna is an unusual volcano in that most of the world's volcanoes occur on constructive and destructive plate boundaries while Etna is formed on a unique boundary between two continental plates, the Eurasian and the African plate, which are pushing towards each other.
Mount Etna is an active volcano located on the Italian Island of Sicily. It is in the Sicilian Apennine mountain range.
Mount Etna erupts because of plate tectonics. The African crust that is sinking near Etna tore, which let hot rock escape and break through the crust in Sicily.
because its a lovely place to go and see the volcano.
Not at all, it is erupting right now!
Mt Etna in Sicily is basically erupting every year :D
Nobody knows when Mount Etna was formed. Scientists are still trying to figure it out. Scientists estimate that Mount Etna has had eruptions for 2.5 million years. They also estimeate that the lava in Mount Etna is 300,000 years old. There is recorded history that Mount Etna has been erupting since 1500 BC.
Both come out of Mount Etna. It is a composite volcano which means it alternates between erupting with pyroclastic material and lava.
The explosive eruption on Mt. Etna took place on May 23, 1992. In all, Etna was actually erupting and venting gas for almost two years before it calmed again.

Is it because Mt Etna is still emitting smoke?
