Abstract

Study of chemical analyses of ground waters in the coast region of Texas and Louisiana indicates that in waters from known salt domes there is a wide variation of sulphur content though higher concentration over the salt core is observed in some cases. Several small ground-water areas unrelated to known salt domes have been distinguished where abnormally high sulphur content is found. These sulphur waters appear to result from surface conditions rather than from buried domes.
