Why do geysers spout hot water?
|Q:||Ask a Question about Why do geysers spout hot water?|
Geysers can be very spectacular, and some shoot water as high as 500 m into the air, although most are much less powerful. Sometimes they erupt at regular intervals, but most erupt only occasionally.
Boiling water is blasted out of the ground by a geyser. When the hot water emerges, it forms a hot spring. These can be very useful, and in several countries the hot water is used for heating purposes.
The edges of the Pacific plate are surrounded by volcanic activity, earthquakes and hot springs, caused as the crust shifts and hot lava rises near the surface. There is even a volcano in the cold wastes of the Antarctic.
