U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PUBLICATIONS

The unquestionable bible of earthly hot springs is Gerald A. Waring's classic tome: Thermal Springs of the United States and Other Countries of the World - A Summary. Published in 1965 by the U. S. Geological Survey, this 383 page searchable PDF (or only its table of contents) can be downloaded below. The book can also be downloaded directly from the U. S. Geological Survey - if you take a look around, you'll also find some other hot springs-related reports at this site that are available online. Much of the information in the 1965 volume is quite out-of-date but it remains required reading for the dedicated hot springs afficionado.
