What is Hot Spring?

[Image will be uploaded soon]

Hot springs are also known as the thermal springs, which spurts water that has higher temperatures which are moreover higher than the air temperature of that region that is surrounding the spring. The hot springs are a discharge of the groundwater that is heated by shallow intrusions of the magma. 

However, these thermal springs are not related to volcanic activity. In the cases of hot springs, the water is heated by the convective circulation of groundwater which percolates downward and then reaches the depths of a kilometre or even more where the temperature of rocks is quite high because of the normal temperature that is the gradient of the crust of the earth. 

Hot Spa

A hot spa is formed by a hot tub, which is typically used to refer to the above-ground portable spa. A hot tub or this portable spa is a total self-contained vessel. All kinds of plumbing works, and also the electrical control system and other such components, are built inside the hot tub. Extra plumbing is not required here.

The contrast between these two is their actual use and their location. A hot tub does have spa-like qualities like spas are often a standalone establishment or this is an in-ground structure that also provides all the health treatments. Whereas, a hot tub is portable and has plumbing and other electrical control systems.

FAQs on Hot Spring

1. Explain the Meaning of Magma.

Ans. Magma is an extremely hot liquid which is a semi-liquid rock in its form that is located under the Earth's surface. This magma is able to push through the holes or through the cracks in the crust, which causes a volcano to erupt. When the magma flows or it erupts onto the Earth's surface, this turns into a material called lava. Like solid rock,  magma is a mixture of all other minerals. Magma is quite hotter than the lava, this also depends on how quick the lava reached the surface and also if the magma and the lava are from the same magma chamber below the earth’s surface. 

Scientists use the term magma for the molten rock which is underground and the lava is used for the molten rock which breaks through the Earth's surface.

2. What Do You Mean By Convective Circulation?

Ans. In the hot-water heating system, the movement of the water through the pipes occurs as a result of gravity, this causes the lighter and warm water in the system to rise, and the cool and heavier water to fall below.

3. What are Sulphur Springs?

Ans. Sulphur springs are springs that contain the water of sulphur compounds in them, like hydrogen sulphide with its own characteristic odour.

Hot springs which are a rich source of sulphur have their own healing benefits including the treatment of skin irritations and other skin infections like rashes and eczema.
