TRAVERTINES OF PAMUKKALE
The word traverten comes from the Roman name "Tivertino" of Tivoli, where large travertine deposits are found in Italy. Traverten is a versatile, slip formed by chemical reaction post-precipitation due to various causes and environments.

After removing the thermal water from the source, 320 m.
the length of the travertine comes to a distance of 60 to 70 meters and the average length of the travertine is about 240-300 m. At a temperature of 35.6 ° C from the source,
Calcium carbonate is precipitated and causes travertine formation during contact with oxygen in the air with high content of Calcium Hydrocarbonate in the water. The precipitate is in the gel state in the first step. In the formation of whiteness, weather conditions, heat loss, flow propagation and duration are influential. Precipitation, carbon dioxide in thermal water,
it continues until it comes to equilibrium with the atmospheric carbon dioxide.

Reaction chemically Ca (HCO3) + O2 - & gt; CaCO + CO2 + H2O

Traverteners are not always in contact with water, as they appear on cards and brochures. Because the water-filled travertines look nicer and pleasing, their photographs are usually taken when the water is full, and are always thought to be full of water.
Travertines are provided within a specific program with thermal water control. The thermal water which is poured into the same amount for a long time and for a long time causes algae and therefore unpleasant pollution in the white traverten areas.
The traverten areas must be dried for a certain period of time in order to prevent this pollution and also to harden the initially precipitated precipitate.
Entering the main traverten areas is the first part of the travertine to be in the form of soft gel and crushing and breaking when it starts to work
