Water in the Desert:
Desert Springs, Oases & Waterholes
A spring is the result of an aquifer being filled to the point that the water overflows
onto the land surface. There are different kinds of springs and they may be classified
according to the geologic formation from which they obtain their water, such as limestone
springs or lava-rock springs; or according to the amount of water they discharge-large or
small; or according to the temperature of the water-hot, warm, or cold; or by the forces
causing the spring-gravity or artesian flow. - (USGS)
