Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates

Sun, 30 Dec 2012, 11:02
Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
Sporadic small explosions and ash emissions continue, but at lower levels than during past months.
Wed, 26 Dec 2012, 11:05
Ash emissions of low intensity continue from time to time at Reventador. The lava dome is most likely continuing to grow, but direct observations are often impossible. IG experiences technical problems with the seismic station at the moment.

Mon, 17 Dec 2012, 10:40
A steam plume was seen rising about 1 km above the crater during a (rare) window of clear weather on 16 Dec.
Fri, 14 Dec 2012, 11:05
Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
A strong pulse of volcanic tremor and volcanic earthquakes occurred earlier today, suggesting a possible small emission. Visible observations remain difficult due to cloud cover and there are no other reports of activity.

Current seismogram CONE station ( IGEPN)
While direct observations are usually impossible due to cloud cover, seismic tremor pulses and explosion signals indicate ash emissions occasional mild explosions continue.
Tue, 11 Dec 2012, 06:30
Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
Compared to November, the activity has decreased, but weak explosions with small ash emissions continue, accompanied by moderate seismic activity.
Tue, 20 Nov 2012, 11:05
Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
Reventador volcano's activity continues at elevated levels with the possibility of larger explosive eruptions and pyroclastic flows, according to the latest report of the Instituto Geofísico. ...more read all

Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
While visual observations are difficult to absent due to near constant cloud cover, the seismic signal tells a clear story that significant activity is going on at the growing lava dome. ...more

Current seismic signal (CONE station) showing tremor and activity from rockfalls and small quakes (IG)
A new phase of activity started on 9 November, characterized by lava flows from the crater, steam plumes, and thermal anomalies detected in satellite images. ...more read all
