Novyy Fontan (new fountain)

Novyy Fontan (new fountain) geyser is one of the 5 largest geysers on the Vitrazh. It is located on Vitrazh's horizontal ledge (a so called Fontans Platform), 2 meters to the right from the Fontan geyser. It functions on a quite different schedule from all other geysers — eruption lasts several times longer than the period of calm. During the eruption, boiling water goes up mostly about 1—3 meters. The cycle is irregular — different researchers measured a full cycle length from 11 to 154 minutes.
