Groundwater salinity within the Mt. Simon Sandstone in Illinois and Indiana

In the Cambrian-age Mt. Simon Sandstone, salinity varies widely from less than 1,000 mg/L of total dissolved solids (TDS) in northern Illinois to more than 250,000 mg/L of TDS in southern Illinois. Salinity is an important characteristic of groundwater and is quantified by measuring the TDS. With re... Full description
