In October 2014, we took our second trip to the El Tatio geyser field, Chile. Based on the 2012 expedition we completed two studies, one of a geyser nicknamed "El Jefe" and a second we named "El Cobreloa". See geyser papers for the results. The focus of the 2014 trip was to study the additional geysers, and to collect water samples and discharge measurements so that we could assess the mass and energy budget of the entire system.
See campus press release and video by former Miller fellow eric King for more graphics and videos.
