Seismic activity remains above background. During 26-27 June, PHILVOLCS recorded 15 volcanic earthquakes.
Other parameters (water temperature and level, pH, deformation) have shown no significant variation during the latest surveys in June. The edifice overall remains slightly inflated when compared to 2011, and CO2 emissions, when last measured in March, were slightly higher then than during the end of November.
