Overall, 43 volcanoes were in continuing eruption status as of 24 June 2021. An eruption marked as "continuing" does not always mean persistent daily activity, but indicates at least intermittent eruptive events without a break of 3 months or more. Detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity, but generally there are around 20 volcanoes actively erupting on any particular day; this is a subset of the normal 40-50 with continuing eruptions. Additional eruption data is available for recent years.
The Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report (WVAR) for the week ending on 20 July 2021 includes the 16 volcanoes shown below marked "Yes" in the WVAR column (rollover for report). The list is sorted with the most recently started eruption at the top, continuing as of the Stop Date given. An eruption listed here might have ended since the last data update, or at the update time a firm end date had not yet been determined due to potential renewed activity. Information about more recently started eruptions can be found in the Weekly Report.
