The inflation at the volcano continues.
The ground at the west of Askja has been uplifted by a further 2 cm since the last update, by 35 cm since the early August last year in total, however, any increase in seismic activity has been detected so far. Earthquake activity is likely a significant indicator of an impending eruption.
If magma accumulation will keep to continue, the inflation may continue without eruption for some time. In contrast, in the case of an eruption, the most likely scenario is a fissure eruption in the vicinity of the crater.
