Hot Spring

The Mud Volcano thermal area is smaller than many other Yellowstone thermal areas, but is located close to the point of maximum uplift of the caldera fl oor (~72 cm) that occurred between 1923 and 1976, and discharges gas with the highest, most magmatic 3He/4He ratios in the park. The thermal area comprises ~30 separate hydrothermal features consisting of fumaroles, gassy pools, and mudpots, plus several zones where CO2 issues diffusely through the soil (Evans, et al., 2010)

Elevation: 7743ft, 2360m.
