Comments on Geologic Parameters
10 Fluid Residence Time:
Jorgensen and others (1996) generated a vector lateral-flow velocity map. The vectors show slow velocity of flow in the Western Interior Plains aquifer system (Jorgensen, and others, 1996). Jorgensen and others (1996) included all of the rock units below the Woodford Shale and above basement in what they called the "Western Interior Plains aquifer system." This aquifer system includes the Arbuckle. Because of the vector nature of the data, we could not quantitatively incorporate the map into our analyses.
