15 Water Chemistry:
Glen Canyon brine chemistry data were summarized by Freethey and others (1988) and Freethey and Cordy (1991), who presented a variety of stiff diagrams and pie charts. Chloride, carbonate+bicarbonate, and sodium+potassium are the chief chemical constituents in brines in the Navajo Sandstone.
