Preliminary results of measurements of geothermal parameters (temperature, temperature gradient, thermal flows, thermal conductivity of sediments) within two areas of intense gas escape and mud volcanism in the Black Sea have been given. It has been shown that zones of mud volcanism and intense gas escape are specified by different geothermal conditions. Essential role of the processes of fluid dynamics has been assumed.
