Fox Hills, Lower Hell Creek, Powder River Basin (10)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

10 Fluid Residence Time:

We were unable to locate maps that show residence time for the Fox Hills Sandstone in the Powder River Basin. However, Henderson (1985) calculated flow rates of 0.16 to 1.08 m/yr from sample data in the northeast part of the basin.
