What are the main characteristics of the ecosystem?
A geyser is a spring characterized by intermittent discharge of water ejected turbulently and accompanied by a vapour phase (steam).
The formation of geysers is due to particular hydrogeological conditions, which exist in only a few places on Earth, so they are a fairly rare phenomenon. Generally all geyser field sites are located near active volcanic areas, and the geyser effect is due to the proximity of magma. Generally, surface water works its way down to an average depth of around 2,000 meters (6,600 ft) where it contacts hot rocks. The resultant boiling of the pressurized water results in the geyser effect of hot water and steam spraying out of the geyser's surface vent (a hydrothermal explosion).
What are the conditions of the abiotic factors?
Geysers around the world.
Human impact on Geysers.
Ways to protect these ecosystem.
- Not contaminating them.
- Not throwing trash into them.
- Don't blocking them.
