Halite (NaCl) and other saline minerals deposited as a result of evaporation. Salt has low density (2.1–2.6 g/cm3, average 2.22), susceptibility –0.01 henries/meter, and high plasticity that results in the creation of salt pillows, domes, walls, and allochthonous features and deformation of sediments.
