Publishing Organization: University of Texas at Austin, Bureau of Economic Geology Series and Number: Geological Circular Publication Date: The size of salt structures in the East Texas Basin is determined by the original thickness of the underlying Louann Salt (Middle Jurassic): that is, salt structures distinctly increase in size toward the interior of the basin.

Initial movement of salt apparently occurred in the marginal areas of the basin during Smackover (Late Jurassic). Introduction. According to the criteria of site selection for the deposition of HLW radwaste (high-level radioactive waste) in deep geological formations, which are based on the principles proposed by the IAEA and the experience of leading countries, three salt domes, in the Central Polish Region, were selected as potential candidates for future by: 9.

The trip is one of several to survey DOE investigations for the siting of a high-level waste repository. This work is under way in a variety of rock types at a. About 60% of the salt is extracted and 40% left as pillars. Assuming a production of 1, tons per year and 15 cubic feet of salt per ton, the space mined out would be acre-feet.

With a thickness of salt of 10 feet and 60% recovery, about 68 acres would be mined out annually. a salt dome basin is one controlled by halokinesis. The Gulf Coast basin is categorized as a salt dome basin. Sediment loading due to progradation over a salt layer with no tectonic influence can create a variety to salt structures proximally and distally (Ge et al., ).

These structures include salt anticlines, stocks, nappes, pillows. The suitability of salt domes in the east Texas basin (Tyler basin), Texas, for long-term isolation of nulear wastes is being evaluated.

Atomic Energy Commission. A thick salt bed, as a placeCited by: The suitability of using salt domes in the East Texas Basin, Texas, for long-term isolation of nuclear wastes is, in p~rt, dependent on the hydrologic stability of the salt domes and the hydrogeologic characteristics of the sedimentary formations that the domes penetrate.

The two prime. Structural Patterns Around Texas Salt Domes The suitability of salt domes as sites for waste disposal is affected by the distribution and genesis of near-dome structural patterns. Structural discontinuities, such as faults, lineaments, and collapse sinks, can influence the migration of ground water and contami­ nants.

When the waste is buried in salt, tiny bits of water inside the salt start to move toward the heat. As a result, the salt left behind is stronger, like a good sealant.

But it is still basically salt. “The salt is completely unaffected by any nuclear waste you could imagine, period,” said James Conca. Jackson, M. A., and Seni, S.
