Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates
Reventador volcano (Ecuador): activity remains elevated, possible lava flow
Monday Aug 17, 2015 10:54 AM | DOOR: T
Small explosion at Reventador volcano yesterday
Current seismic signal (CONE station, IGEPN)
Possible lava flow from the summit of Reventador this morning
Activity at the volcano remains high, both internally (seismicity) and at the summit crater where viscous lava is being extruded. Occasional explosions and incandescent avalanches, possibly also a short lava flow result from this process.
Sunday, Jun 28, 2015
Activity at the volcano has been relatively intense during the past days with at least one active lava flow, approx. 1-1.5 km long, traveling down the SE side of the summit cone. ...
Sunday, May 24, 2015
Activity at the volcano remains at moderate to high levels, according to IGPEN. The lava flow that started on the southern flank on 19 May has not advanced any more during the past days and might be cooling. In turn, explosions have picked up a bit from the summit vent.
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
The volcano's activity remains elevated. Mild to moderate explosions occur frequently from the summit vent, where viscous lava is being extruded and also produces an active lava flow, approx. 300 m long on the southwestern flank. ...
Monday, Apr 13, 2015
Activity has been relatively intense during the past days. Frequent explosions with ash plumes of 1-2 km height and smaller pyroclastic flows have occurred from the summit vent, where a lava dome is growing.
Tuesday, Apr 07, 2015
A larger explosion seems to have occurred about an hour ago. On the thermal webcam, the upper cone is seen covered with incandescent ejecta. ...

Introduction to Plate Tectonics
: The Earth's upper, rigid layer is broken into several plates which are in constant motion to one another. Most earthquakes and volcanoes occur as result of these plate boundaries.
Photos from Iceland
: Volcanoes in the land of fire and ice. Iceland is one of the volcanically most active places on earth.
Top 20 quakes in 2016
: Several magnitude 7 quakes occurred in 2016 (but none above M8): Papua New Guinea, NZ, Ecuador, Solomon Islands, Sumatra, Chile, Alaska and others - nearly all major earthquakes were located near active subduction zones.
