Warm Springs and Tepid Springs in the Southwest China

  • Zhijie Liao
Part of the Springer Hydrogeology book series (SPRINGERHYDRO)


This chapter will briefly introduce warm springs and tepid springs in research area by making use of tabulation. The items in table will show serial number, spa’s name, county, longitude and latitude, altitude, spa’s temperature, the SiO2 content and TDS values of spa’s water, and type of water. The table is marked “SiO2 concentration” that can distinguish type of hydrothermal convective system. The chemical content of some low-temperature springs is similar to that of high-temperature system. The analysis results of its water sample will be fully revealed.
