One of a series of general interest publications on science topics, the booklet provides those interested in geysers with a nontechnical introduction to the subject. Separate sections examine the nature and workings of geysers--why geysers erupt, where they occur, the cause of volcanoes and hot springs, the deep circulation of water in geyser systems, the geyser cycle, differences among geysers, and why geysers die. The text is accompanied by photographs and diagrams clarifying internal processes involved in geyser formation and eruption. (LH)
