Photographer's Note

About 200'000 years ago, Stromboli had not yet reached sea level. However, another volcano was active, whose only remnant today is Strombolicchio, an eroded volcanic neck of basaltic andesitic composition (204'000 ± 25'000 y B.P.).
About 160'000 y B.P. Stromboli emerged from the sea. This happened in the southermost part of the present island. Strombolicchio was being eroded.

Palaeostromboli I and II:
Lava flows andy pyroclastic deposits build up a stratovolcano. Outcrops from this period exist only in deep erosional ravines in the southermost part of todays island. Dated rock ages: 156'000 to 54'800 ± 9'100 y B.P.
