Geyser field Featured 20 Mar 2001 Print

Geyser field

Geyser field. Steam rising from hot pools in a geyser field. Geysers are deep natural wells in geothermal rock fissures. Their water lies in a large chamber at the well's base. The water is heated by surrounding rocks until it is well over its normal boiling point, but is prevented from boiling by hydrostatic pressure. At a critical temperature, the superheated water spontaneously boils, causing an eruption. Photographed in Chile

Cacti Featured 20 Mar 2001 Print

Cacti

Cacti. Unidentified cacti (family Cactaceae) in a desert. Cacti are succulent plants, which means that they are able to store water in swollen tissues, enabling them to survive in arid desert regions. Their spines are modified leaves that protect them from herbivores and reduce the moisture loss that occurs through normal leaves. Photographed in the Atacama desert, northern Chile, one of the driest regions on Earth
