Grand Prismatic Spring

|

The spring is the largest hot spring in the United States and the third largest in the world. The spring is popular for its striking coloration and its colors match the rainbow dispersion of white light by an optical prism i.e. red, orange, yellow, green, and blue. The colors are formed as a result of pigmented bacteria in the microbial mats that grow around the edges of the mineral-rich water. The bacteria produce colors ranging from green to red and the amount of color in the microbial mats depends on the ratio of chlorophyll to carotenoids and on the temperature of the water which favors one bacterium over another. In the summer, the mats tend to be orange and red, whereas in the winter the mats are usually dark green.
