Researchers have developed a mathematical model, which can explain the unique coloration within the thermal pools. The model can be used to explain the Yellowstone thermal pools and recreate its original color.

Earlier this week scientists had revealed the basic physical phenomena that creates the colors of the hot springs. The colors in the hot springs, which are yellow, green and blue, are caused because of interplay between underwater vents and lawns of bacteria. The researchers have created a mathemati...
