Observations of Deformation

Volcano number:311080
Country:United States
Geodetic measurements?Yes
Deformation observation?Yes
Measurement method(s):InSAR
Duration of observation:2004 - 2009
Inferred cause(s) of deformation:Magmatic
Characteristics of deformation:

During October – November 2005, an episode of surface uplift (3 – 5 cm) occurred encompassing┬áboth Tanaga and Takawanga volcanoes. The broad region of uplift is modelled as a pressurising magma reservoir using a point source or a shallow-dipping prolate source that is elongate in the east-west direction. The source depth is inferred to be 5 – 8 km with a volume increase of 0.002 – 0.008 km┬│.
