Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates
Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Sunday Dec 30, 2012 11:02 AM | BY: T
Current seismic signal from CONE station (IG)
Sporadic small explosions and ash emissions continue, but at lower levels than during past months.
Wednesday, Dec 26, 2012
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.
Tuesday, Dec 18, 2012
Seismicity has recently decreased and become more discontinuous.
Monday, Dec 17, 2012
A steam plume was seen rising about 1 km above the crater during a (rare) window of clear weather on 16 Dec.
Friday, Dec 14, 2012
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.
Thursday, Dec 13, 2012
While direct observations are usually impossible due to cloud cover, seismic tremor pulses and explosion signals indicate ash emissions occasional mild explosions continue.
