  Sheppard, D.S., Lyon, G.L., The chemical and isotopic composition of waters and gas discharges from the Tikitere and Taheke geothermal fields, New Zealand. Geothermal circular CD30//4-DSS5, Report to the Geothermal coordinator, Department of Scientific and Industrial Research New Zealand, 2 by: 8. The Taupo Volcanic Zone is known for its geothermal activity. For example, Rotorua and the surrounding area have many areas with geysers, silica terraces, fumaroles, mudpools, hot springs, etc. Notable geothermal areas include Whakarewarewa, Tikitere, Waimangu, Waiotapu, Craters of the Moon and Orakei rmal energy is used to generate electricity at Wairakei, near Taupo. Three deposits have been explored recently: Tikitere and Taheke, near Rotorua, and Lake Rotokawa, near Taupo. The Tikitere deposit, currently being mined, is hosted in hydrothermally altered rhyolite ignimbrite and overlying pumice breccia within the Tikitere hydrothermal field (Taylor & Thorpe ). to the various hot springs and the Fall River in Hot Springs, SD. This type of study was highly applicable to the Hot Springs area, because thermal spring water forms a majority of the flow of the Fall River, similar to the hydrologic set up in the Tama River watershed in Japan.

geothermal springs across New Zealand ( – °C and pH. () generally agreed that the area surrounding Hot Springs, N.C., is faulted and may be described as a structural window. However, Trapp () suggested that the structure is a graben rather than a window and stated (p. 28) that "A fault probably forms part of the artesian system supplying the thermal springs at Hot Springs.". A large-scale three-dimensional numerical model of the Waiotapu, Waikite and Reporoa geothermal fields, New Zealand, is presented. The model covers an area of km2 and extends to a depth of.

Yellowstone was set aside as the world’s first national park because of its hydrothermal wonders. The park contains more t thermal features, including the world’s greatest concentration of geysers as well as hot springs, mudpots, and steam vents.   U–Th disequilibrium dating of hydrothermal calcite offers a potentially powerful tool for the direct dating of alteration events (see Ku, for an extensive review). Sturchio and Binz ()demonstrated the viability of the technique in the dating of individual vein calcite samples from the Valles Caldera geothermal system, r, using individual samples to determine ages is. The Idaho Department of Water Resources provides an interactive map with information on geothermal wells and springs in the state. Wells and springs are split into low-temperature (85 to degrees fahrenheit) and high-temperature (above degrees) groups. Users can click on individual wells and springs to find more information, including temperature, discharge, and use.
