Scientists of Geology Institute with National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan (NASA) developed a new methodic for mud volcanoes search. This method includes decoding air and space photographs,Trend reports with reference to NASA.
Head of mud volcano department with the Institute of Geology Adil Aliyev said or scientists obtained new results by decoding said photographs. Buried mud volcanoes have been revealed in southwest of Absheron peninsula and at 110km of Baku-Salyan
Mud volcanoes have been studied for over 40 years in Geology Institute. Aliyev said there are some uncertainties in this sphere of science. There is not full notion of formation and mechanism of mud volcanoes showing. There is no sufficient information on buried volcanoes either.
Last years buried volcanoes have been revealed in Azeri sector of Caspian Sea during the exploratory operations.
Mud volcanoes are tightly linked to oil-and-gas content of the area. Over 90% of revealed oil&gas deposits of Azerbaijan are linked to mud volcano structures. Therefore, newly found buried mud volcanoes may witness the oil-and-gas content of the areas they are located in.
