The latest report of Sernageomin indicates that volcanic unrest continues at reduced intensity. GPS measurements show that the central part of the volcanic edifice has been experiencing uplift at a rate of 1.4 cm / month and a horizontal displacement to the west at a rate of 0.64 cm / month.
Another station, located in the southwest of the caldera has in turn showing displacement to the SW. This indicates clearly that a small bulge (presumably caused by intruding magma) has formed in the central part of the Laguna del Maule.
No unusual surface phenomena have been noted so far.
