Generally Sabancaya volcano activity is low. Registration of volcanic seismic events shows averages associated with LP type events (15 LP / day) and Tremor (19 TRE / day). The volcano-tectonic events have shown increased activity on seismic focus located 9 km southeast of the town of Maca. However, the earthquakes VT type proximal were recorded sparingly on Sabancaya.
VTPS type of events (proximal Volcano-tectonic), located less than 6 km from the crater, fell on average, recording 2 VTPS / day. Two events of magnitude 2.6 ML and 2.7 ML recorded between 10 and 14 May, respectively come off.
Magmatic gases expelled by Sabancaya were few, while the water vapor transmission remains constant and predominant. The height during this period has not changed from the previous report, ranging from 400 meters to 800 meters above the crater.
Satellite monitoring of the density of SO2 and thermal anomalies Mirova did not detect significant anomalies in this period
