Caption: Lusi mud volcano eruption. Satellite image showing the site of the mud volcano in Sidoarjo, East Java, Indonesia. North is at top. In this infrared image, the grey areas are bare ground, the water of the Porong River (horizontal strip) appears dark blue and vegetation appears red. A patch north of the river, bounded by a highway to the east, has experienced continuous mud flow from a vent since late May 2006. This release of built-up mud and gas is thought to have been triggered by oil and gas drilling, but the drilling company blames an earthquake in the region two days beforehand. Photographed by the Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on NASA's Terra satellite on 3rd September 2006.

Release details: Model release not required. Property release not required.
