Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates

Mon, 24 Aug 2015, 08:53
Explosion at Reventador volcano this morning
The volcano's activity remains at similar levels as during the past weeks. Lava continues to be extruded from the summit crater, producing frequent small to moderate explosions. No sustained lava flow is currently active: ...more

Small explosion at Reventador volcano yesterday
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.

Possible lava flow from the summit of Reventador this morning

Active lava flow on Reventador today, seen on the thermal webcam
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. ...more

Small explosion at Reventador volcano yesterday
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.

Infrared image of the lava flow on Reventador volcano today (IGEPN)
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. ...more

Explosion and pyroclastic flow at Reventador on 9 April
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.

Incandescent material on Reventador volcano, presumably from an eruption this morning
A larger explosion seems to have occurred about an hour ago. On the thermal webcam, the upper cone is seen covered with incandescent ejecta. ...more

Infrared image of Reventador volcano on 15 Mar (IGEPN)
The recent lava flow on the southwestern flank, that had started early on 11 March and had reached a length of approx. 1500 m, seems no longer to be active, or has decreased a lot. Occasional small explosions continue to occur at the summit vent.

Thermal image of Reventador volcano today
Mild explosive and effusive activity in the form of a dome at the summit crater continue. Washington VAAC reported several small ash emissions and thermal images suggest that the lava flow on the upper western flank remains active.

Thermal image of Reventador's new lava flow today
A new lava flow seems to be active on the southwestern flank. Occasional explosions continue from the summit vent where a lava dome is growing. ...more
Thu, 5 Feb 2015, 20:18
Activity with sporadic small explosions from the active dome continues. Seismic activity is at moderate levels.
