Loutra Ypatis (Thessaly and Central Greece)

Type: Bubbling Water
Description: Thermal spring feeding a thermal center. The water is currently drained by a gallery and therefore the water level is about 5 m below ground at the bottom of a funnel-like hole. For safety reasons the hole was covered by a closed building. The gas, which is vigorously bubbling in the spring, is mostly composed of CO2. The walls of the hole are covered of sulfur that derives from the partial oxidation of the H2S contained in the released gas.
