Caption: Geothermal spring. Boiling mud pool at a geothermal spring. The water heated underground by hot rocks, causes steam to rise through the mud. Mud pools like this are generally found in areas where the earth's crust is thin, allowing internal heat to escape to the surface. The internal heat comes from the decay of radioactive elements, chemical changes occuring under great pressure, and geological movements. Photographed in Namaskard, Iceland.
