Kohler curve between saturation ratio (ratio of vapor pressure of a solvent over a solution droplet to its pure component vapour pressure over a flat surface saturation at the same temperature) and droplet diameter D represents a region where the growth of the droplet is dominated by solute effects till it attains a saturation ratio S, of unity at which point the droplet diameter is named potential diameter Dp.
A second reason for applying Ca to turfgrass is sometimes based on the basic cation saturation ratio (BCSR) theory of soil testing.
Abbreviations: BCSR, basic cation saturation ratio; CEC, cation exchange capacity; SLAN, sufficiency levels of available nutrients.
Further work would be required to determine if low CEC calcareous sands, with low Ca saturation ratios, would benefit from supplemental Ca applications.
Soil test interpretations: Basic cation saturation ratios and sufficiency levels.

We have previously reported some effects of various process parameters in melt intercalation of PEO, such as annealing temperature and time and the pressure applied to the physically mixed green body of polymer and clay powder (5) on intercalation process and have determined the saturation ratio of polymer to layered silicate (6).
This suggests a lower saturation ratio for the PEO-B34 hybrid than for the PEO-MMT hybrid.
The saturation ratio of polymer to silicate is thus an important technical parameter in the design of weight ratios required in any real, industrially compatible process.
He added that the sectors of the Egyptian economy vary in size, performance, and saturation ratios. However, most of them are defensive sectors that offer attractive returns to foreign investors, especially after the decline in value of assets denominated in US dollars, which increased the interest of foreign and Arab investors.
