The Price River is a significant contributor of salt to the Colorado River. Relatively pristine waters leaving the upper elevations of the basin degenerate into highly saline waters entering the Green River. The primary reason for this deterioration is the contact of the water with the Mancos shale, a marine deposit underlying most of the central basin. This paper presents the structure of an evolving model of the salt pick-up and transport processes in the Price River basin. The initial purpose of the model is to aid in the identification of the natural and man-modified hydro-salinity-sediment system of the basin, based on data collection and analysis in the field and the laboratory. This identification procedure...
