Taller than the tower of Pisa, which is 57 meters high, is the almost boiling steam and water boom that spits the most active geyser known to science: the Steamboat. Sometimes even double the height of the Tower of Pisa.
This geyser is located in Yellowstone National Park, United States.
Steamboat eruptions take place approximately twice a month, and reach heights of 60-115 meters, in addition to a temperature of 71 ° C.
The main eruptions of Steamboat generally last from 3 to 40 minutes (a couple of durations that exceed the hour were observed during the active phase of 2018), and are followed by powerful steam jets. The Steamboat does not erupt at a predictable schedule, but at recorded intervals ranging from three days to fifty years. The geyser was inactive from 1911 to 1961. In 2018-2019, the geyser entered a prolonged period of frequent activity with more than 40 eruptions reported in the period of one year.
The most recent Steamboat eruption occurred on June 19, 2019. This was the eruption number 23 of 2019 (the 55 eruption since it was reactivated in early 2018).
Before 1904, Waimangu Geyser, in New Zealand, had some higher eruptions capable of reaching 490 m, but in 1904, a landslide changed the local water table, and since then, Waimangu has not erupted more times.
