A new hot spring has appeared in the Kamchatka Territory in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve. Since May, it gushed, releasing a three-meter column of boiling water, and now it has formed like a 58 geyser in the valley.

According to the press service of the government of the Kamchatka Territory, it is located just 200 meters from the Bolshoi geyser, which erupts every hour. According to the reserve's inspector Leonid Podstavin, the new geyser has two griffins: first, a small fountain gushes from below for about four minutes, and then water bursts out of the upper one for 10-20 seconds.

There was already a geyser at this place, but after a landslide it disappeared in 2014. As explained by the senior researcher of the Kronotsky Reserve, hydrogeologist Alexei Kiryukhin, after the landslide, the water pressure in the source weakened. But after last year's flood, the water level in the lake increased and the outflow resumed.

Such processes indicate that the pressure in the hydrothermal system has increased significantly. Therefore, scientists expect new discoveries in the Valley of Geysers. For the first time, scientists observed the emergence of a geyser in 2018. From the bottom of the Geysernaya River, a jet of boiling water suddenly burst one and a half meters. But after the flood, this source disappeared.
