For you,, the only one too predict Etna erupting,, in a 24hr Time Frame,,,twice,,
Hope this might help.
For the math people, in todays day and age,,
an interesting Formula for Energy Release.
Eth = VxdxTxK (from the Dynamics of Volcanism)
Eth is in Joules
V=volume in cubic kilo meters.
d=specific gravity (1.0)
T=temp. of Ejecta (500 degress Centigrade
K=Constant including the specific heat of the magma,
and the mechanical equivilent of heat,(8.37x10*to the 14th power,),,
thus the thermal energy released during the 79 A.D eruption was or approximately,,
2x10*too the 18th power Joules.
May help in calculations,,
