This is a spring that flows from the rock at the bottom of the ocean, a lake or a river. A freshwater spring that flows from beneath the sea bed near the coast is called a ‘sea dragon eye’. An example is on the east coast of Zhijin County at Dalian, where a series of freshwater springs rises from the sea bed to form a spectacular ‘sea dragon eye’ scenery. Other examples are the ‘Dung Spring’, which flows from the riverbed of the Huanghe section between Hancheng, Shaanxi Province, and Wanrong, Shanxi Province, and the 50°C hot spring that flows from the bed of the Qinglong River at Lulong, Hebei Province. These springs have important tourism value and are water resources that can be developed further.
