Thermoplasmatales and sulfur‑oxidizing bacteria dominate the microbial community at the surface water of a CO2‑rich hydrothermal spring located in Tenorio Volcano National Park, Costa Rica
Here we report the chemical and microbial characterization of the surface water of a CO2-rich hydrothermal vent known in Costa Rica as Borbollones, located at Tenorio Volcano National Park. The Borbollones showed a temperature ...
Microbial Community Structure Along a Horizontal Oxygen Gradient in a Costa Rican Volcanic Influenced Acid Rock Drainage System
We describe the geochemistry and microbial diversity of a pristine environment that resembles an acid rock drainage (ARD) but it is actually the result of hydrothermal and volcanic influences. We designate this environment, ...
Scattering of light by colloidal aluminosilicate particles Produces the unusual sky-blue color of Río Celeste (Tenorio Volcano Complex, Costa Rica)
Río Celeste (Sky-Blue River) in Tenorio National Park (Costa Rica), a river that derives from the confluence and mixing of two colorless streams-Río Buenavista (Buenavista River) and Quebrada Agria (Sour Creek)-is renowned ...
