Castle Geyser (2014-2015)

Geysers are hot springs that episodically erupt columns of water. They occur in few places on Earth. The highest concentration of geysers anywhere is at the Yellowstone Hotspot Volcano (northwestern Wyoming, USA).

Castle Geyser is the namesake & largest member of the Castle Group in Yellowstone’s Upper Geyser Basin. It has a large, gray, asymmetrical, terraced geyserite mound that is relatively old, estimated to be near-latest Pleistocene to mid-Holocene in age. Minor eruptions are water-phase only, and last less than 15 minutes. Major eruptions have a longer-than-15 minutes water phase, which gradually changes to a mixed water-steam phase and then a moderately noisy steam phase.
