The Tengchong geothermal area, located on the northeast edge of the Indian-Eurasian plate collision zone, is characterized by frequent tectonic and magmatic activities and widely spread hot springs, serving as a natural laboratory for the geothermal system study. By far, the concentrations of REE in hot springs are barely reported owing to the low concentrations, although it is an important parameter reflecting the rock-water reactions in shallow crust. The concentrations of REE and pattern in the Tengchong hot springs with high temperature waters are studied in this paper, and further compared to those in the geothermal fields in American Nevada and California states.
