Observations of Deformation
|Region:||Iceland and Arctic Ocean|
|Measurement method(s):||InSAR, GPS - continuous, GPS - campaign, Levelling, Strainmeter, Tiltmeter, EDM|
|Duration of observation:||2009 to 2011 (published results); continuous|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Michalczewska et al. (2011) show continuous inflation the Krísuvík geothermal area in early 2009 using continuous GPS and ENVISAT InSAR data. The authors show that uplift “continued until fall of 2009 when the area began to subside reaching the pre-inflation state in early spring 2010. In April 2010 another uplift episode started”. Up to 2011, the inflation continued at a comparable deformation rate to the pre-deflation one.
