What creates hot springs?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hot springs are created when water percolates down through the earth and becomes trapped by a fault or crack. This water is then heated by processes occurring deep underground. When new colder water is added, the heated water is then forced out along the fault lines. Depending on the composition and size of the surrounding rock formations, water may move slowly back to the surface, allowing it time to cool to a nice, warm hot spring.
