Constant Geyser, Norris Geyser Basin, YNP.

Detailed Description

This oft-active geyser is located close to the boardwalk in Porcelain Basin. It erupts neutral-to-alkaline water, rich in Cl. The temperature is measured in the outlet channel that carries much of the erupted water. Rapid temperature increases in geyser outlet channels typically reflect increases in flow due to eruptions of the nearby thermal feature.
