Man downtown Hot Springs is amazing! I wonder how a hot spring is made?
Hi my name is Drew and I think I can help with that.
Hi my name is Amy. That sounds great!
Well for starters as the water gets deeper into the earths core the hotter the rock in the ground gets. And when the water touches the hot rock it starts to heat up.
A hot spring in Hot Springs Arkansas is first made when the rain water that gets trapped in the ground from four thousand four hundred years ago. The water gets pushed down the earth's layers by gravity.
Hoe does the water get back up to the surface?
The water rises back up to the surface because Hot springs is built over a volcanic vault and that is what heats up the rock. When the rock hets up that is what heats the water and the water starts to rise because the pressure of all of the heat pushes it up before it has time to cool.
Wow that is fantastic information! Thank you so much Drew for telling me that.
