Observations of Deformation
|Duration of observation:||2007 to 2009|
|Inferred cause(s) of deformation:||Uncertain|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Chaussard and Amelung (2012) have reported an uplift of 8.6cm during the period of observation (mid-2007 to early 2009). The uplift signal has a circular shape that is centred on the edifice that is likely to indicate the arrival of new magma. The shallow-sourced inflation of 1.1km below sea level has so far not resulted in eruption.
