Basin Fill Sandstone and Carbonate Aquifers, Basin and Range (13)

Arizona, Nevada, and California

Comments on Geologic Parameters

13 Rock/Water Reaction:

Data on rock/water reaction in the deep carbonate aquifers were provided by Thomas and others (1996). Immature mineralogy of Tertiary sandstones may have moderate reaction with high CO2 brines.
