Indonesia’s Napan mud volcano started erupting on June 7, 2022, and the event was recorded by locals.
The volcano is located in the village of Napan, East Nusa Tenggara, Timor.
“I don’t know much about the Napan mud volcano, other than there are two clusters of active vents. I’m not sure which vent erupted today,” said geomechanics & pore pressure specialist, Mark Tingay.
Napan mud volcano is just across the border, and only 350 – 1 200 m away (1 150 – 4 000 feet), from the larger and better known Oesilo mud volcano (Poto Oesilo) in East Timor.
