Summary:A conceptual model of the flow regime between the shallow aquifers, the Paradox salt and the deep-basin brine aquifers is developed. This model is tested using a three-dimensional, finite-difference flow code. The model is described in terms of its areal and vertical discretization, aquifer properties, fluid properties, and hydrologic boundary conditions. The simulated results are described with potentiometric surfaces, tables summarizing the areal and vertical volumetric flows through the principal units, and Darcy velocities at specified points.—Modified journal abstract.
