Reykjanes volcano (Iceland) - Smithsonian / USGS Weekly Volcanic Activity Report for 19 February-25 February 2020 (New Activity / Unrest)
On 25 February IMO reported that seismic activity at Reykjanes, in an area N of the town of Grindavík, had significantly decreased during the previous few days, and inflation was not detected in GPS and InSAR data. The Aviation Color Code was lowered to Green. Preliminary data suggested a small deflation signal beginning mid-February, though further analysis was needed for confirmation.
