Rotorua geothermal system.

Volcano: Rotorua geothermal field (see Rotorua geothermal field at the Smithsonian Institution website in a new tab)
Type: Soil Diffuse Emission
Description: Rotorua is part of the Taupo Volcanic Zone, a geothermal field extending from White Island off the Bay of Plenty Coast to Mt Ruapehu far to the south. Rotorua's array of geothermal features - volcanic crater lakes, spouting geysers, bubbling mud pools, hissing fumaroles and colourful sinter terraces - are sure to impress.
