The chlorine content of ground waters from Louisiana and Texas salt domes has been found useful in identifying the source of the waters and in correlation of waterbearing sands. The amount of chlorine is lowest in the near-surface waters and increases downward, reaching saturation near the salt of shallow cores but in domes of the deep-seated type rising gradually at a rather uniform rate below the 2,000-foot level. In several cases structure of the rocks is clearly suggested by chlorine concentration in ground waters.
