The genesis of mud volcano conduits through thick evaporite sequences

Abstract:

This paper documents the seismic expression of the conduits underlying over 350 mud volcanoes that were erupted in an area of the western Nile Cone in the past 5.3 Myrs. The study is based on a c. 4300 km2 3D seismic survey. The conduits are interpreted to transect the > 1000 m thick Messinian Evaporite succession, demonstrating that the eruptive process is sufficiently dynamic to breach the formidable seal represented by the evaporites. The mud volcano conduits are remarkably similar in g...
