From 1975 to 1984 the northern Icelandic rift underwent a rifting crisis. Since 1992 the area has been regularly covered by the 2 ERS radar satellites, allowing to form 110 INSAR interferograms with 22 SAR scenes for mapping crustal deformation. The signal geometry indicates that the main component of movement affecting Krafla is vertical. The large number of interferograms on which the deformation signal affecting Krafla is visible allows to ascertain that the deformation rate remains constant since 1992
