Observations of Deformation
|Duration of observation:||02/2007-01/2011; 01/2007-08/2010|
|Inferred cause(s) of deformation:||Uncertain, Degassing processes (suggested)|
|Characteristics of deformation:|
Two separate studies (Chaussard et al, 2013; Gonzalez et al, 2015) have utilised ALOS (Advanced Land Observation Satellite) data to perform InSAR studies on the regions surrounding the Singkut caldera. While neither study was centred on Singkut, focusing instead on the nearby Sinabung and Toba edifices, both noted a small amount of deformation at Sibayak, a stratovolcanic cone of Singkut.
