Study on the Genesis of Geysers in American Yellowstone National Park
Yellowstone geyser is a unique geological landscape, how it was formed? Current explanation about Yellowstone geysers is that it was formed by seafloor spreading and plate tectonics model, but these models cannot explain in many cases and even have contradictory. Combined with the model “source power for continental drifting-plate self- driven mode” by the author, a new genetic model was given in this paper, that is when the continental plates drift, mountains and plateaus were formed in front of the plate motion by Scratching accumulation and extrusion force. It may also whip up some deep-sea water-containing material to the formation of the deep aquifer traps, and the aqueous traps also communicate with the deep magma, it will receive continuous stress changes in the movement of tectonic plates, thus produces geysers. At the same time, deep-sea sediment was formed in its rear. This model fits very well with the Rocky Mountains of North America. The genetic model provides us a new way to rethink the origin model of the North America geographical environment.
