Reventador volcano, Ecuador: news & activity updates
Reventador volcano (Ecuador) activity update
Saturday Aug 17, 2013 14:58 PM | BY: T
MODIS hot spot data (past 7 days) for Reventador volcano (ModVolc, Univ. Hawaii)
Eruptive activity continues at moderate levels. There are occasional ash explosions with plumes of a few 100 m height and possibly minor lava effusion from the intra-caldera cone at the summit.
Thursday, Jul 25, 2013
Activity remains at high levels, characterized by small explosions and the likely effusion of lava flows. Unfortunately, near-constant cloud cover makes direct observations difficult.
Wednesday, Jul 24, 2013
Small to moderate explosions and (probably) the effusion of a lava flow on the NE side of the cone continue. Seismic activity is high.
Sunday, Jul 21, 2013
Effusive and explosive activity at the surface as well as seismicity have continued to increase. A lava flow is traveling from the summit crater on the southern side towards the SE flank and there are numerous small explosions which create ash plumes of up to about 1 km height. ...
Wednesday, Jul 17, 2013
The IG reported that in the last few days, increased seismic activity indicative of increased eruptions has been noticed at the volcano. Seismic data also indicated the presence of a lava flow travelling down the SW slope of Reventador's intracaldera cone.
Sunday, Jul 07, 2013
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.

: The volcano in Iceland with the unpronounceable name... but famous in 2010 when its ash clouds drifted over Europe and forced a unprecedented large-scale airspace closure for several days, stranding millions of passengers.
Desert, Salt & Volcanoes
: Experience one of the geologically most active areas on the planet: the Danakil desert in northern Ethiopia. Highlights include Erta Ale volcano with its active lava lake and Dallol hydrothermal fields offering a surreal landscape of colors, salt, geysers and springs.
