Liu-Huang-Ku hydrothermal area (Taipei City, Taiwan)

Liu-huang-ku Sulfur Valley Geothermal Scenic Area

Volcano: Liu-Huang-Ku geothermal area (see Liu-Huang-Ku geothermal area at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Soil Diffuse Emission
Description: LHK hydrothermal area, formed ca. 0.8 to 0.6 million years ago, is a 1 km long, 150 m wide phreatic crater located on the hillside of southwest Tatun Volcanic Group (TVG) with several steaming fumaroles and artificial hot springs. Fumarolic gas composition of TVG samples reflects a mixing signature between convergent plate gases and air/groundwater, suggesting that the magma source of the TVG gas is closely associated with the subduction system in NE Taiwan.
