Kanlaon Volcano’s monitoring network recorded two (2) volcanic earthquakes during the 24-hour observation period. Moderate emission of white steam-laden plumes that rose 400 meters before drifting northwest was observed. Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission was measured at an average of 587 tonnes/day on 17 February 2021. Ground deformation data from continuous GPS and electronic tilt measurements have been recording a slight inflation of the lower and middle slopes since June 2020. These parameters may indicate hydrothermal, tectonic, or deep-seated magmatic processes occurring deep beneath the edifice.
