The majority of freshwater is contained in the Upper Floridan aquifer and is used for water supply (Miller, 1986). The Lower Floridan aquifer contains fresh to brackish water in northeastern Florida and Georgia, while in south Florida it is saline. The potentiometric surface of the Upper Floridan aquifer in May–June 2010 shown on this map was

The aquifer generally varies in thickness from 5-30m. The water table typically sits at a depth of 10-35 m. Boreholes are not normally drilled below a depth of 80 m. The productivity of the Coastal Aquifer is limited due to issues with saline intrusion. Salinity and nitrate are common groundwater quality issues. Karoo Sandstone Aquifer

Understanding Salinity - Department of Water

Understanding Salinity. Changes in landuse, seasonal variations in our weather and longer-term changes to climate can all affect surface water, groundwater, the flows between them, and the amounts of salt that they contain. The term "salinity" refers to the concentrations of salts in water or soils. Salinity can take three forms, classified by ...

Carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestration in deep saline aquifers ...

Broadly defined, deep saline aquifers are underground, water-filled strata. They are distributed widely across much of the world (Fig. 3.1 and 3.2) and are important potential CO 2 repositories because many are large, generally contiguous reservoirs that may be capable of storing large volumes of CO 2 (Hitchon et al., 1999).These aquifers, beneath both continents and oceans, are …

These aquifers are considered to be potential storage site for the carbon dioxide captured from industries. Saline aquifers run deep underground and hence provide access to storage opportunities in many parts of the world. It is estimated that deep aquifers saturated with brine solution has the greatest potential for carbon dioxide storage.
