"Mud Mud Glorious mud..." (scatter a few rugby boozy singing musical notes around the quote), this appears to be one of the numerous Azerbaijan mud volcanoes.
There are also a number of real volcanoes in the arc running through Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan & Iran, currently nominally attached to the Arabian plate & subducting oceanic crust under the Azerbaijan arc. While dormant, these genuine volcanoes are definitely not dead, but the pace of volcanism in a slow convergence rate arc backed by a range is slow, and the magma has a long time to sit @ the base of the crust cryatallising out & exsolving gas.
The fact that this is a mud volcano eruption is assured as the eruption of a genuine volcano in that arc would have made world headlines as a result of spectacularly fizzy magma being picked up on satellite as a relatively high plume, & reports of ashfall in numerous neighbouring states with mideastern type theocrats going gaga about the end of the world etc.
Would however like to see a pic of the real mud volcano bubbling up out of the Azerbaijan forearc. Also remind the Napthalan not to bathe in it until AFTER the flames have gone out!
Have a nice day: Ag
