This grids represent the distribution of total dissolved solids (TDS) in the Cardium hydrostratigraphic unit (HSU).
It is a result of a geostatistical model which was constructed using publicly available data from the following sources:
- Formation water chemistry from drillstem test and production fluids from oil and gas wells
- Formation water chemistry water analyses from water source wells, submitted as part of water license applications
The TDS surface was mapped at a regional scale using many years of data, thus providing a good indication of regional water chemistry within the unit rather than site-specific values.
