Mud volcano in Trinidad, new island formed!

Monday, August 6, 2007

In news from Trinidad, Richard Robertson, the head of the Caribbean nation's Seismic Research Unit, said that mud spewing out of the sea five miles off the eastern coast of Trinidad could be a mud volcano that could form a new, temporary island. The seismologist pointed out that the mud was pouring out of an opening or several openings in an underwater hill or mountain at a depth of 40-50 feet near the Point Radix coast Waves are breaking around it, which suggests that it is just below the water surface so it's only a matter of time when it breaches the surface. Even if a so-called island is formed, it will eventually submerge because it is made of mud and is loose," Robertson said. This is not the first occurrence of such a phenomenon in the twin republic. In 1997, a mud volcano erupted on land, burying 10 houses in the central village of Piparo. In 2001, a mud volcano rose 5 feet above sea level, creating an island that eventually collapsed.
