Field measurements on 21 November 2019 at the eastern sector of the Main Crater Lake yielded an increase in water temperature from 32.8°C to 33.6°C and a decrease in water level from 0.49 meters to 0.46 meters. Ground deformation measurements through precise levelling surveys from 19 - 26 September 2019 indicated inflation of the edifice consistent with recent results from continuous GPS data. Phivolcs
