Color code:  green 

Volcano id: 373060

Activity summary:
The aviation color code at Askja is being returned back to green. Ground deformation indicates that magma continues to accumulate at depth since August 2021 and a total uplift of 40 cm is currently measured in the inner part of the caldera. This deformation is however not accompanied by elevated seismicity which continues to be within the known background level. This return to green is taken considering the need of the ACC to communicate about short-term changes and not to reflect on long term trends. Askja remains a volcano that IMO keeps a close eye on because of the long-term deformation and IMO will inform promptly whenever there will be further changes that might suggest escalation towards an eruptive event.
