The Alaska Volcano Observatory (AVO) registered a swarm of earthquakes beneath the volcano that started on 24 August and is still continuing.
Quakes were located at deep levels firstly, at about 25 km depth, but have become progressively shallower up to approx. 7-to-5 and even 0 km depth since 28 August until now.
Earthquake magnitudes have ranged between M 0.7 and M 1.9.
At a swarm peak episode, dozen of quakes have been occurring daily beneath the edifice, but over the past week, its frequency has decreased to a couple per day.
The elevated seismic activity may indicate that increased fluid movements of gas, water and possibly magma shift under the surface.
A continuing shallow-level seismicity is expected including other signs of unrest, such as gas, water vapor emissions, elevated surface temperatures or ground deformation.
