Volcano in Golubitskaya (Azov Sea) threw a column of water with dirt.
Underwater mud volcanoes are usually in shallow waters. When resting, they release gas bubbles which rise along with turbidity, revealing its location. Eruption of these volcanoes lead to the formation of islands, which are quickly washed away by waves. In place of mud-smeared islands accumulated sediments. Formed offshore submarine banks. These sites are dangerous to navigation. They are plotted on a map and listed in the sailing directions. In the Azov Sea and so are Golubitskaya Temryuk banks.
Last Golubitsky volcano exploded on the night of 3 to 4 June 2000. View of the island is shown in the photos. Its length is 40 meters, width — 20 m, height of about 2 m is interesting that it is usually appeared in the summer.
Mud volcano makes itself felt a deafening crash, the underground buzz, after which rises above the sea island. As usual, the island is formed closer to the camp "The Seagull" in the beach area. To the resulting island swim taking pictures, consider what it's complicated. Dirt is not always cold. Findings on the bank in the form of parched gray and brown baked slices indicate a high temperature.
Most of the islands are of a size of 100 m and a height of about 2 m Sometimes these islands "live" for months, often blurring the sea in a month or two. Such eruptions Golubitsky bank Temryuk Gulf described in "Mining Journal." Eruptions occurred in 1799, 1814, 1862, 1888, 1906, 1960 Since 1950, the work in almost a year.
In 1994 there was an eruption and a split of land from the beach, past the eastern edge of the lake, extreme house at the lake and up the slopes. The split was seen in the fall of 1996. This eruption was quite formidable. Him in the evening watching holidaymakers. Gul, smoke, fire at sea, and only in the morning there was an island.
Azov Sea mud volcanoes are interesting to science, since every time scientists learn something new about the Earth's interior. Golubitskaya Bank (submarine rise in the sea) is not connected to Temryuk can. These banks are well described in the sailing of the Azov Sea. It contains a warning skippers of active volcanoes and the possible appearance of the islands, are dangerous to navigation. The locals, sailors, fishermen are well aware of these places. The same period, a decrease in the appearance of islands on the surface of the Sea of Azov. Some attribute this to the passing now solar activity.
