The volcanic unrest continues at the volcano. Some of the latest monitoring parameters show an increase while others have remained more or less stable, according to the volcano observatory in Catania.
Microseismic activity as well as fumarole temperatures at the crater and gas emissions of carbon and sulphur dioxide remained elevated while no new changes in ground deformation were found.
Temperatures at fumaroles on the crater rim show an increasing trend and were measured as up to 370 degrees C, while those inside the crater, possibly cooled by rainwater, were up to 220 degrees hot only.
It is thought that the gases are released from a magma chamber at around 3.5-4 km depth. Whether or not there will be new volcanic activity at Vulcano Island in a the near to medium term future (weeks to months) is impossible to predict. At least for now, this scenario does not seem to be immediate and likely to occur, but the volcano remains under close surveillance.
