A volcanic lava type inflammable liquid has been reportedly profiting out of the ground in Tripura's Jalifa village and has triggered panic among the local residents of the area. It has gradually become a matter of concern for the Tripura state government, in North East India, which is highly vulnerable to earthquakes as it lies in seismic zone V.

This is the third such incident reported this year the state which is very close to Chittagong in Bangladesh.

Earlier in mid-April, at two spots, namely Baishnavpur and Ghagrabasti of Sunroom, lava-like liquid erupted along with fire and gas.

In the recent incident from a few days ago, the local villagers of Jalifa were scared to find lava erupting from the lower portion of the electric pole on the roadside and reported the matter to the fire extinguishing team and local police. A team of firefighters rushed to the spot and tried to spray water and foam, but failed to stop the ongoing eruption that had already burned the spot.

Meanwhile, scientists from the Department of Science, Technology and Environment of the Government of Tripura also visited the spot. After examining the spot and analysing the samples collected from the spot they concluded that the fire, smoke and other materials running out of the ground is due to a fault line that passes through that area beside the displacement of the underground tectonic plates in that region and which is creating huge subsurface heat causing the incident.

However, Avisek Chaudhuri, from the Tripura Space Application Centre, who is the leading scientist team viewed that there is very little chance of eruption of lava or an active volcano. But the Science, Technology and Environment Minister of Tripura Sudip Roy Barman has expressed concern as the state has a history of recorded massive earthquakes earlier.

Barman said that the government is taking the matter into consideration.

Amazing image.

Just a coincidence I guess, last night I watch the film 'Reign of Fire' YES I know a little off topic but O.0

IMO the best realistic dragon menace film :sun:

Dutchsinse has been showing on his earthquake website, how something similar is happening in Oregon and California. Although to date, none has actually come to the surface, the magma is so close to the surface that he picks it up on a map (I forgot the name of the website that shows the map).

He has theorized that is portentially the reason or one of the reasons for the recent fire in Paradise, California.

Not just the Paradise fire, since hot spots were showing up next to each of those recent catastrophic fires just before they broke out.

I understand that there is an increased level of cosmic energy hitting Earth simply because the Sun is moving through a higher energy and dust sector -- and effectively pulling the solar system with it --- and this is accentuated by a solar minimum period with the Sun at very low activity levels and therefore not acting as a shield for us from incoming energy .
As a result , Earth's planet core is obliged to 'spit back' some of the extra energy which it cannot indefinitely absorb and/or dissipate .
Hence Earthquake ,Volcanic and related types of activity including lava flows to sink holes and funny noises as the inside cracks and groans due too both expansion and expulsion .
But I cannot easily see that near surface magma could generate surface fires which burn selectively --- buildings but not surround trees and vegetation in many instances .That hints more towards types of DEW and an entirely different raft of scenarios .

DEWs are certainly a possibility as well (Dutchsinse doesn't discount that, but when he does address that, of course he gets even more flack than usual from the "experts", but magma could cause a drying and heating process that would make fires breaking out more likely. It could also be a combination of the two.

Condamine River's mysterious bubbling methane intensifying in Queensland, Australia (https://www.sott.net/article/312262-Condamine-Rivers-mysterious-bubbling-methane-intensifying-in-Queensland-Australia)


Hi Hervé. :sun: From the link above -


Origin Energy, which operates CSG wells in the district, is monitoring the bubbling in the Condamine.

"I have to question if Origin is doing the ongoing monitoring, why isn't more of an independent person doing the ongoing monitoring so that there's some real transparency with what's actually happening?" Ms Bender said.

Western Darling Downs landholder and anti-coal seam gas activist John Jenkyn said the bubbling had worsened since the arrival of the CSG industry.

"I think [it's] the de-watering. As [the CSG companies] take all the water out of the wells I presume the gas has found the easiest route out of the ground, which happens to be in the river. So up she comes," he said.

A Queensland Government report released in December 2012 found that the cause of the bubbles was "unlikely to be determined in the short-term, and that a long-term approach to find more science-based answers to the phenomenon was needed".

"I think there's a lot missing in those [methane seep] reports which we need to know the answers to now, because the bubbles are getting worse as the CSG activities continue," Ms Bender said.

I agree that Origin shouldn’t be the ones monitoring it. A friend of mine drilled for gas in that region for years (left the industry a couple of years ago), worked for a few different companies, one of them Origin. Do you think it’s possible the drilling has caused or exacerbated the problem?

P.S. I suspect this is a stupid question, it seems obvious the drilling would at least exacerbate it, but then again I know pretty much nothing about geology, so since the government claims they need to understand the science of it better first, I thought I’d just ask you.

[...]

[...]
Since there aren't much data available, I have no clue if the drilling is responsible for the increase in methane release/bubbling (the correlation/causation thingy). But, if they also use fracking to increase the relative porosity of the ground, then yes, that would do it.

On the other hand, rivers have the natural tendency to make their beds along fault lines (natural fracking /rock crushing planes), a change in the regional tectonic stress could also do it. Such a change could also be related to a minute decrease of the rotation speed of the earth... as they say: more data/studies needed :)

Gushchu mud volcano


Gushchu mud volcano erupted in Shamakhi region.

The eruption occurred 150 meters from the village.

The process was registered today at 06:00 am. The mud lava reached about 4-5 meters.

The eruption caused numerous deformations and cracks in two houses.

The mud lava spread over an area of ​​two hectares.

Head of department, doctor of geological-mineralogical sciences, professor Adil Aliyev told Trend that the mud volcano erupted occurred after the earthquakes in Shamahi and Agsu on February 5. No one was injured during the eruption.

He stressed that there were no emissions of flame. Therefore no cracks characteristic for the eruption of such volcanoes were formed.

In conclusion, the professor added that Gushchu is a small but active volcano.
"The eruption first occurred in 1913, the last was in the past. Including the last eruption, Gushchu volcano has erupted 15 times over the past 200 years. The strongest eruptions were in 1917, 1941 1992," he said.
Previously, the scientist told Trend that powerful earthquakes affect the activation of volcanoes, and suggested that, along with Gushchu volcano, Demirchi, Gizmaidan volcanoes can be activated in Shamakhi, while Shikhzerli may erupt in Gobustan.

Azerbaijan or as it is called Land of Fire has the highest number of mud volcanoes in the world. Some 350 out of over 1,000 mud volcanoes in the world are located here.

The world's largest mud volcanoes - Boyuk Khanizadagh and Turaghai - are both in Azerbaijan. Boyuk Khanizadagh, the diameter and height of which are 10 kilometers and 700 meters respectively, erupted on October 10, 2001, shooting out flames for 300 meters in the air. It was the highest record for flames shot from a mud volcano.

Underground and submarine mud volcanoes are also located in Azerbaijan.

There are more than 140 submarine volcanoes in the Caspian Sea. Eight islands in the Baku Archipelago are mud volcanoes by origination.

About 23 mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan received the status of the National Park and are protected by the state. In addition, they were included in the list of Seven Wonders of the World.

There are several interesting facts about mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan.

NASA geologists studying Mars planet, concluded that mud volcanoes of Azerbaijan are similar to uplands of the planet for their structure.

On September 5, 2004 the greatest mud volcano in the territory of Azerbaijan was added into the Guinness World Records.

The mud volcanoes located in Gobustan National Park sights attract thousands of tourists annually.

The State Historical-Artistic Reserve has been functioning since 1967. In 2007, the reserve was included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

A trip to Gobustan gives you a great chance to see these amazing active volcanoes from very close distance.

Azerbaijan's rich fields of oil and gas condensate such as Lokbatan, Garadagh, Oil Rocks, and Mishovdag were also discovered near mud volcanoes.

The lava, mud, and liquid spewed by mud volcanoes are used as raw materials for chemical and construction industries, as well as pharmacology.

Enriched with specific components - mineral salts, organic substances, microelements, volcanic mud has medicinal properties that have a beneficial effect on the human body.

Volcanic mud gives a great effect in the treatment of patients suffering from diseases of the peripheral and central nervous system, gastrointestinal tract, skin, etc.
