Abstract

On the basis of earlier work and geologic settings, seven areas in Afganistan were identified as being favorable for evaporite deposits other than halite.  Five were known or suspected to contain continental brines or evaporites; two are diapirs composed of deformed marine evaporites.  They were visited, samples, and are here evaluated.
