Abstract:

Geohydrology in the Tatum salt dome area of Lamar and Marion Counties, Mississippi, has been studied since 1961 in support of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commissions safety program for the two nuclear tests, the Salmon and Sterling Events. Tatum salt dome pierced sedimentary rocks ranging from Late Jurassic to middle Tertiary in age. Ten major aquifers have been identified in the sedimentary rocks of the area nine of them contain water under artesian pressure.
