|Basin Fill Sandstone and Carbonate Aquifers, Basin and Range
(Arizona, Nevada, and California)
Thomas and others (1996) presented several types of maps that display fluid residence time for the carbonate aquifers in Nevada. These maps are derived from carbon-13 and carbon-14 compositions of ground water. Flow rates are shown for Tertiary basin-and-range aquifers in Nevada in Harrill and others (1988).
