Paluxy Sandstone, East Texas Basin (11)

Comments on Geologic Parameters

11 Flow Direction:

In their nuclear waste-disposal feasibility studies, Kreitler and others (1983, p.105) concluded that their pressure data base was not good enough to generate potentiometric surfaces for any of the formations (including the Paluxy) that they studied, and therefore, they could not make any conclusions regarding flow directions or velocities.
