Mt. Simon Formation, Michigan Basin and Ohio Area (12b)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

12b CO2 Solubility Brine: Formation Pressure:

We calculated a pressure gradient of 0.0095 Mpa/m from a pressure vs. depth diagram (Vugrinovich, 1986). Additionally, we added 16 pressure data points supplied to us by Vugrinovich, (personal communication, 2000) in our analysis. Gridded data are presented in c12bmtsimon.
