White Dome Geyser

White Dome Geyser in Yellowstone National Park is named for its massive 12-foot high geyserite cone, shooting steam about 30 feet into the air every 15 minutes to 3 hours. The opening of the cone is only a few inches wide and as minerals build up on the outside, the cone raises. As that happens, the width of the inside of the geyser is reduced, making it possible that in time the cone will seal itself, making the geyser dormant.
