Abstract

The chapter embodies the authors' findings, and the logical conclusions they drew from them, on the mud cones (or 'mud volcanoes') they found In the intertidal zone and on the beach of the Alleppey mudbank region in 1972. Their experiment with regard to these mud cones confirm beyond doubt the viscous nature of the mud that underlies at Allepey, and its being, for all probability, the source of Alleppey mudbank. Similar mud cones observed earlier by some workers are also discussed briefly.
