Basin Fill Sandstone and Carbonate Aquifers, Basin and Range (Arizona, Nevada, and California)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

6 Continuity:

Sand-body continuity of the Tertiary basin-fill aquifers is inferred from data in Planert (1996), and Robson (1996). Sand-body continuity in these aquifers is typically very high within each fault-bounded basin, but poor between basins because of the complex structure.
