Madison Group, Williston Basin

Comments on Geologic Parameters

10 Fluid Residence Time:

An area of minimal ground-water flow on the northeastern flank of the Williston Basin coincides with the area of high concentration of dissolved solids, as shows on the map by Downey (1986), digitized for this parameter. Rate of movement of about 2 ft/yr is calculated for this north area.
