Description:
Natural hot springs and pools, both developed and undeveloped.

Expanded Description:
There is no universally accepted definition of a hot spring. For example, one can find the words "hot springs" defined as:

* any geothermal spring

* a spring with water temperatures above its surroundings

* a natural spring with water temperature above body temperature – normally between 36.5 °C (97.7 °F) and 37.5 °C (99.5 °F)

* a natural spring with warm water above body temperature

* a thermal spring with water warmer than 36.7 °C (98.1 °F)

* a natural spring of water greater than 21.1 °C (70.0 °F) (synonymous with thermal spring)

* a natural discharge of groundwater with elevated temperatures

* a type of thermal spring in which hot water is brought to the surface. The water temperature of a hot spring is usually 6.5 °C (11.7 °F) or more above mean air temperature. Note that by this definition, "thermal spring" is not synonymous with the term "hot spring".

* a spring whose hot water is brought to the surface (synonymous with a thermal spring). The water temperature of the spring is usually 8.3 °C (14.9 °F) or more above the mean air temperature.

* a spring with water above the core human body temperature – 36.7 °C (98.1 °F).

* a spring with water above average ambient ground temperature, a definition favored by some. * a spring with water temperatures above 50 °C (122 °F)

(The above definitions of hot springs were copied from wikipedia.)
