Earlier, the researchers have thought that muds on the Red Planet were left over from Lava flows. However, according to the latest reports, the mud flows on Mars on the surface of the planet could have been caused by Mud volcanoes. They said that rapid burial of water-rich sediments after massive floods could have led toward sedimentary volcanism, where mud and sediment erupt to the surface millions of years ago.
