GOSA Transactions

The Geyser Observation and Study Association (GOSA) has produced a number of transactions over the years with articles detailing various geyser studies throughout Yellowstone. Included, also, is a special edition covering the "Valley of the Geysers" (Dolina Geizerov, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia) the second largest geyser field in the world next to Yellowstone.

Inventory of Thermal Features of the Firehole River Geyser Basins and other selected areas of Yellowstone National Park.

Dr. George Marler’s comprehensive digest of geyser activity through the early 1970’s provides an excellent historic reference. The descriptions of hot springs and geysers was prepared by Marler for the U.S. Geological Survey, based on many years as a naturalist and geyser specialist with the National Park Service. Marler supplemented summaries of his observations with historical information.

Originally published as National Technical Information Service, Publication PB221289, both a paper version and  a cd-rom version is available through the GOSA store.
