Title: Mud Volcano (Active) Devils’ Wood Yard. 347. Trinidad
Abstract: What looks like a puddle of mud, in this vintage photograph, is actually an active mud volcano at the Devil’s Woodyard, Hindustan, near Princes Town showing one of its numerous vents and its surrounding cracked mud surfaces. Typically the vents have either black oil or iridescence in the mud. The phrase "mud-volcano" commonly applies to a relatively violent eruption or surfaces extrusion of watery mud or clay which is almost always accompanied by methane gas, and which generally tends to build up a solid mud or clay deposit around its orifice which may have a conical or volcano-like shape.
