A volcano on the island of Santorini in Greece seems a bit restless, according to scientists studying the latest data.

Monitoring stations on the island indicate the Santorini caldera is awake again and rapidly deforming, said Georgia Tech researcher Andrew Newman.

“After decades of little activity, a series of earthquakes and deformation began within the Santorini caldera in January of 2011,” Mr. Newman said. “Since then our instruments on the northern part of the island have moved laterally between five and nine centimeters.”

“The volcano’s magma chamber is filling, and we are keeping a close eye on its activity,” he added.

The volcano, if it should erupt, could possibly present Greeks with tsunamis, say experts. The chamber has expanded by nearly 500 million cubic feet since last January, and could force delays in cruise lines navigating the area. The amount of magma that has been pumped into the chamber is the equivalent of a sphere three football fields across.
