Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates

Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update: growing lava dome, occasional explosions and pyroclastic flows

Activity remains similar to the past months at moderate, but fluctuating levels. A more intense phase seems to be going on at the moment, as bright glow has been visible at the summit since yesterday night.
A cake-like viscous lava dome is slowly growing at the summit crater and produces occasional incandescent avalanches and rockfalls. During phases of more intense activity such as around mid-late November, regular small to moderate explosions, occasional pyroclastic flows and short-lived lava flows occur (last on 20 Nov).
