The mud was deposited in huge number and in fast moment, in marine environment, had not yet compacted and soon was covered by land sediment. Plastic/elastic clay got the stress from the weight of sediment in the upper, and then perfuse like Bledug Kuwu in Purwodadi and LUSI (Lapindo’s Mud) in far eastern Sangiran.
