Rotorua: Boiling Mud Pool in the Te Whakarewarewa Valley


Boiling Mud Pool
The image shows a pool of boiling and bubbling slurry of gray mud in the Te Whakarewarewa geothermal valley located in Rotorua, New Zealand. These pools, known as mud pools or mud pots, are a typical occurrence in geothermal areas.

Mud pools occur when the acids, gases, and microorganisms emanating from the underground geothermal activity break down the rocks into mud. If the water supply is limited, the mud becomes a viscous slurry and starts boiling and bubbling due to the high temperature.
