Thermal Features




Geologic Guess for this week.
–    MUD POT:    “A mud thermal feature where there is not sufficient water to carry away mud and clay size particles so that they accumulate in the vent or crater of the thermal feature. Gases moving up through the thick heavy mud causes it to bubble like a pot of cooking wheat cereal (mush). “
