The micromorphological structure of microbial mats (biomats) from the hot springs of the Vilyuchinskaya hydrothermal system, Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia, were investigated. The Vilyuchinskie hot springs had a discharge temperature of 55-56 degrees C and Na-Ca-HCO3-type waters rich in silicic and boric acids. Water and biomats had high concentrations of Fe,(More)
621 The hydrothermal systems of Kamchatka are unique natural laboratories where minerals are formed under the natural conditions at the present time. Elucidation of the role of bacteria, algae, and diatoms from thermal waters and bacterial mats in the geochemical transformation of rocks has attracted the special attention of researchers. The involvement of(More)
