Current SOSO seismogram from station (INGEOMINAS)
There were a total of 36 seismic events associated with fracturing of rock, of which 29 were characterized by low energy level. The remaining, higher energy level, were located mainly in an area between 1 and 2 km north of the volcano, at depths between 1 and 6 km and with local magnitudes around 0.1 degrees on the Richter scale.
The network of electronic inclinometers for monitoring deformation showed stable behavior.
Monitoring of surface activity at the volcano was done using the webcam installed at the place called Cerro Crespo. When weather conditions allowed, it was possible to capture images of the volcano, in which no morphological changes were evident.
