A previous study noted the occurrence of a subsurface brine plume with more than 160 g/L sodium chloride perched above Welsh salt dome in southwestern Louisiana. Plumes of saline groundwaters have been reported above other Gulf Coast salt domes as well. The U.S. Geological Survey code SUTRA was used to model the formation of brine plumes around a generic salt dome by basin dewatering along the flanks of the dome, and also to study the gravitational instability of a brine plume initially perched… CONTINUE READING
