Abstract[EN] This research focuses on the mud volcanoes Amsterdam, Kazan and Kula located in the Anaximander Mountains (SW Turkey continental margin), which are characterized by the presence of sediments containing gas and gas hydrate. These mud volcanoes were sampled by recovering four gravity cores. For sediment located right on top (crater or active part of the summit) of the mud volcanoes, the physical properties are controlled by lithology and mud volcanic processes rather than the degree of compaction. This could suggest the possibility of current mud volcanic activity. In contrast, the sediment located in the external flank of Kula mud volcano displays physical properties mostly related to consolidation effects and to the type of sediment at a detailed scale, as occurs typically in deep-sea fine grained sediments. This suggests a restricted influence of mud volcanic processes
[ES] Este trabajo se centra en el estudio de sedimentos procedentes de los volcanes de fango Ámsterdam, Kazan y Kula localizados en las montañas submarinas Anaximander (SO del margen continental de Turquía), caracterizados por la presencia de sedimentos que contienen gas e hidratos de gas. Estos volcanes de fango se muestrearon con cuatro testigos de gravedad. En los sedimentos localizados en los cráteres (o en las cimas activas) de los volcanes de fango, las propiedades físicas están básicamente controladas por la litología y procesos volcánicos. Esto sugiere un actividad volcánica reciente. Por el contrario, el sedimento localizado en el flanco externo de Kula presenta unas propiedades físicas básicamente relacionadas con el efecto de consolidación y, a escala de detalle, con el tipo de sedimento como ocurre en general en sedimentos marinos profundos. Esto sugiere una influencia restringida de los procesos volcánicos
