The distribution of sodium chloride in the waters of the Woodbine sand in East Texas is examined quantitatively. The salt distribution west of the Mexia fault implies an effective coefficient of diffusion of approximately 300 times the normal value. This increase is explained by the presence of convection currents the possibility of which has been demonstrated elsewhere. The observed salt concentration around the Boggy Creek salt dome is explained on the basis of diffusion from a cylindrical source.
