The image shows earthquakes and GPS-displacements together in one picture. The earthquakes have different colours representing how long it's been since they were measured. GPS displacements are shown with black arrows. The circles around the arrows represent uncertainty in the measurements.
The Icelandic Met Office has published two maps
showing the (ongoing) mostly horizontal deformation, as evidenced by GPS measurements, in the Bardarbunga area during the past 3 days as well as since the beginning of the crisis. In just 2 weeks, the distance between the DYNC station (western side of the rift) and GSIG (eastern side) has increased by almost 50 cm!
Deformation since the beginning of the crisis (not all stations started exactly at the same time, but the overall picture is correct)
