water saturation

[′wȯd·ər ‚sach·ə′rā·shən]
(chemistry)
A solid adsorbent that holds the maximum possible amount of water under specified conditions.
A liquid solution in which additional water will cause the appearance of a second liquid phase.
A gas that is at or just under its dew point because of its water content.

To find out the reservoir properties of Zindapir various petrophysical parameters were determined for rock units drilled in the Zindapir-01 and Savi Ragha-01 wells including water resistivity (Rw), shale volume(Vsh), average porosity(cpD), effective porosity(cpE), density porosity(cpD), neutron porosity(cpN), water saturation(Sw), bulk volume of water(BVW), lithology, gas effect, reducible and irreducible water saturation (Swr,Swir) to evaluate their reservoir potential.
In the same conditions, the water saturation drops quickly if the gas saturation is high, similarly, if the gas relative permeability increases the water relative permeability decreases, the production of CBM improves, the gas pressure fall sharply to a stationary value which means extraction turns into the state of fast gas-generating.
In order to predict how long-term variations in the water budget will impact nutrient and carbon cycling it is necessary to evaluate the influence of water saturation on mineral weathering reactions.
Welge [7] proposed that waterflood sweep efficiency could be obtained by water cut and water saturation curves.
The amount of absorbed water in the coatings increased with time and gradually approached a plateau, indicating water saturation of the polymers (Fig.
A suite of geophysical wire-line logs comprising of gamma ray, resistivity, spontaneous potential, neutron, sonic and density logs for four wells from Meyal Field were analyzed to estimate properties such as volume of shale, average porosity, permeability, water saturation, hydrocarbon saturation, bulk volume of water, gross thickness, net thickness, net/gross ratio and net pay thickness of reservoirs.
The company's CSM 02 system also analyses other important oil parameters, such as water saturation, temperature, viscosity and relative dielectric constant in stationary or mobile applications.

This land represents difficult technical challenges due to the water saturation levels of the local soil, the organic content, and the soil salinity.
1987) modified commercial Pine and Birch with AA and they found that ASE% is up to 40 % for WPG of 7-10 %, thus concluding that acetylation decreases the rate and the level of swelling due to water saturation.
The three-month-old plants were exposed to 90-70% of maximum soil water saturation - control, mild drought followed by recovery of optimal soil water saturation (90-40%) and severe drought (50-40% of soil water saturation) for 21 days.
