How do geysers erupt?

    Groundwater seeps down into the ground until it hits rock that is hot due to contact with magma. Convection of the hot water causes it to rise back up to the surface. Deposits of SiO2 on the sides of the “pipes” leading up to the surface allow them to be pressure-tight, so the water can rise all the way to the surface.
