**About**🤪 halfway between Auckland and Wellington, NZ, is the Waimangu Volcanic Valley, the world’s youngest geothermal system. A leisurely 2hr walk takes you through amazing scenery... •
Pic 1 - Marble Terrace and Iodine Pool - Silica rich waters from the hot spring have built these variegated colored buttresses over time. Primary minerals causing the colors are antimony, molybdenum, arsenic and tungsten. •
Pic 2 - Inferno Crater Lake - this trumpet shaped lake rises, overflows it’s primary crater, fills an overflow area and then recedes in a rhythmic way every several weeks. It’s depth varies from 72 to 98ft with a cozy temp of 176*F and pH of 2.1. The highly acidic nature of the water accounts for the lack of algae and the silica content for the white lining of the pool - both contribute to the signature pale blue color of the water. •
Pic 3 - Frying Pan Lake - Not actually a lake at all, but the largest hot spring in the world. The surface of the water is only about 131*F and only 20ft lower, it’s boiling (>212*F). The carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide gasses account for the ‘steam’ seen coming off the water. The pH here averages 3.8 even though it’s also fed by hot springs and vents that carry alkaline input of 8.2-8.7. •
There’s an interesting, and inverse, relationship between Frying Pan Lake and Inferno Crater. Every 38 days there is an oscillation where one fills and is significantly more active in its outflow and temperature while the other reduces. •
Pic 4 - Lake Rotomahana - 2,000 acre lake is the newest formed (1886 eruption that created the entire valley) and deepest lake in the north island. A protected wildlife refuge, it’s host to a large flock of native New Zealand black swans, pukekos and other birds.
Today brought one of the best hikes ever. @robb.and.dog and I trekked through the #Innstidalur Valley and up Mount #Hengill , an active volcano whose geothermal activity brings power to southern Iceland. We scrambled up craggy inclines, hopped over geothermal streams, and took in panoramic views of this amazing, living landscape. If you come to #Iceland , look beyond the #GoldenCircle - there is so much more to explore!

———————————————————————— Although this one looks very inviting , better be careful. ♨️ the water temperature is actually between 80-100 degrees celsius. Still beautiful from distance 😝 #iceland#goldencircle#hotsprings
Sustainability Club’s first ever Campus Energy Tour met with Keith Hill, OIT’s lead Engineer, to learn about the campus’s geothermal power and heat plants. We will be hosting a second tour in the fall of 2018 to learn about the newly updated turbines!#cleanenergy#earthweek#geothermal#hotwateriscool
All the late-night early mornings. The battles I hav had wit myself over n over. The critics the hate. The disbelief... But thank God my FAVOR outweigh what they say... hard work outweighs talent they say.
Thank God he blessed me with the best of both worlds.. #JUSWAITONIT#FAMGANG#DCE3#GEOTHERMAL#DANEW252
