The LP type and hybrid type of seismicity associated with fluid movement and ascent of magma, respectively, maintain a low level of activity, as well as in levels of energy values that such events arise.
VT (or fracture) type earthquakes continue to indicate the system pressure during this period. 152 VT / day were observed; by comparing this value with the last six weeks, the VT activity tends to decrease. Similarly, the energy values VT remain low.
The Mirova system detected thermal anomalies in this period, most of them have reached the 4 megawatts.
During the inspection visit to the area of the Ubinas volcano, the presence of a magma body at the base of the crater has been identified. With the use of an infrared thermometer from the edge of the crater, a maximum temperature of 454 ° C was measured.
