Sun, 12 Aug 2012, 10:05VAAC Washington warns about a possible volcanic ash cloud rising to 6 km altitude from Reventador volcano, which was first detected at 11:15 GMT today. If it is ash, it means a new eruptive phase has started at Reventador. Another possibility is that is a storm cloud. So far, there are no other reports about an explosion. Read all

Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update: incandescence at crater, steaming, occasional small ash eruptions
Thu, 29 Mar 2012, 10:05During 25-26 March incandescence from a high part of the volcano was observed. On 26 March a steam emission rose 500 m above the crater. Based on analysis of satellite imagery and seismic data, the Washington VAAC reported that an ash plume drifted 25 km NNW on 26 March.
Thu, 23 Feb 2012, 06:15Continued small lava flow on NE flank, visible as thermal anomaly. Washington VAAC reported an ash plume that drifted 19 km SE on 16 February. IG observed an ash plume that rose 100 m above the crater on 18 February.
Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update: ash emissions, lava flow on NE flank, crater incandescence
Wed, 15 Feb 2012, 00:01New activity was detected on 10-13 February. Satellite images showed a thermal anomaly on 10 February. Based on pilot observations, the Washington VAAC reported an ash plume that rose to an altitude of 5.2 km (17,000 ft) a.s.l. and drifted NW. On 11 February ash-and-steam emissions drifted NW. Seismicity increased on 12 February and a lava flow descended the NE flank during 12-13 February. Crater incandescence was observed during 10-13 February.

Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update activity update: constant steam and gas emission from growing lava dome
Fri, 13 Jan 2012, 00:01IG reported that staff conducting fieldwork at Reventador during 6-7 January observed constant emissions of gas-and-steam rising about 300 m above the crater and drifting WNW. The emissions originated from a growing lava dome that was a few tens of meters above the crater rim and almost filled the base. Read all
