Geysers and Hot Springs
Geysers and Hot Springs in Iceland examines nearly all of the country's larger and more important springs, while additionally providing in-depth accounts of the most interesting thermally active areas. In this useful, captivating book you will find the origins and history of geysers and hot springs and learn about how the inner earth's blazing heat has been harnessed to generate electricity and provide heating for thousands of Icelandic homes. With countless colour photographs, illustrations, maps, and even some Icelandic poetry and folk legends, this extremely readable book outlines Iceland's geothermal treasures more completely and enjoyably than any other book to date.
The authors, Björn Hróarsson and Sigurður Sveinn Jónsson, are both trained geologists. Together they have spent years studying Iceland's geysers and hot springs and their long-standing proximity has afforded them opportunities to capture many rare phenomena on film. Most of the photographs in this book were in fact taken by Hróarsson and Jónsson in the course of their research.
Size 24.5 x 23 cm. Hardcover with 158 pages.
