Comments on Geologic Parameters

12c CO2 Solubility Brine: Formation Water Salinity:

Formation-water salinity data for Tertiary basin-fill aquifers are provided in Robson (1996) and the U.S. Geological Survey (1996). Concentrations of greater than 3,000 ppm of total dissolved solids are limited to elongate, fault-bounded areas.
