During 1-7 July IG reported a high level of seismic activity including explosions, tremor, long-period earthquakes, harmonic tremor, and signals indicating emissions at Reventador; cloud cover sometimes prevented visual observations. Incandescent material that traveled more than 1 km down the SE flank was visible during 1-2 and 6 July in thermal images. Ash emissions were visible on 2 July, and a steam-and-ash plume that rose 2 km and drifted SW was visible the next day. A minor ash emission rose less than 500 m and drifted W on 6 July.
