Comments on Geologic Parameters

10 Fluid Residence Time:

Estimated travel times from the westernmost recharge area in New Mexico to the eastern boundary range from 1.2 to 4 Ma, depending on the flow path and average porosity of the different units (Senger 1991). Remember that permeability values assigned to the different hydrostratigraphic units are average values representing heterogeneous systems. (Senger and others, 1987, p. 27).
