Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates
Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Sunday Jul 07, 2013 15:36 PM | BY: T
Current webcam view of Reventador (IGPEN)
Current seismic signal of Reventador (CONE station, IGPEN)
An increase in seismic activity has occurred today. A steam plume can be seen rising above the volcano and a hot spot at the summit continues to be visible on MODIS satellite data, suggesting continuing lava extrusion.
Monday, Jul 01, 2013
IGPEN characterizes the activity as moderate with seismic activity mainly related to internal fluid movements as well weak pulses of tremor and explosion signals. The volcano is hidden in clouds most of the time, but a thermal anomaly has become visible at the summit again on recent MODIS satellite data, possibly related to a recent small effusion of lava there.
Friday, Jun 28, 2013
Weak eruptive activity continues with occasional steam and ash emissions during small explosions that create plumes reaching about 1 km.
Saturday, May 25, 2013
No significant changes have occurred recently. The volcano remains active at moderate levels and produces a steam plume 800-1000 m high and occasional small explosions.
Tuesday, May 14, 2013
IG reported continued moderate activity with occasional (mostly unobserved) small explosions.
Monday, May 06, 2013
Activity has remained moderate with occasional explosions and possibly the emplacement of a hot avalanche or lava flow on the eastern flank, where a new hot spot on the latest MODIS satellite data can be seen, in addition to the summit where a lava dome is active.
