Occurs when the vapor is at the dew point or saturation temperature corresponding to its partial pressure. A gas in never saturated with a vapor. However, the space occupied jointly by the gas and vapor may be saturated. ( 030)
An equilibrium condition in which the net rate of absorption under prescribed conditions falls essentially to zero.
1. The extent to which the pore space in a formation contains hydrocarbons or connate water. 2. The extent to which gas is dissolved in the liquid hydrocarbons in a formation.
The condition when the atmosphere is holding the maximum amount of water vapor that it can for a given temperature. When the air is saturated, the temperature will equal the dew point temperature.
The condition of the atmosphere when the amount of water vapor present is the maximum possible at the existing temperature.
A condition in which the voids in a soil mass are filled with water.
Condition existing when substance contains all of another substance it can hold for that temperature and pressure.

the degree to which a geologic formation is filled with water
The fraction of the total available pore space that is filled with water. When the saturation equals unity (Sw = 1), the ground-water flow is said to be saturated.
The point at which one substance absorbs or holds the greatest possible amount of another substance (for example: the point at which a sponge has absorbed all the water it can hold). The region below the ground's surface in which all pore spaces are filled with water. The upper surface of this zone is known as the water table.
Point at which the amount of water vapor in the air is at a maximum for a given pressure and temperature.
A parcel of air at a given temperature is said to be saturated with water vapor at that temperature when the addition of any more water(or a decrease in the temperature) will lead to condensation.
The point at which a solution is holding as many dissolved solutes as possible for its temperature and pressure
The condition of air when it contains all the water it can hold at a certain temperature. When air is saturated, the relative humidity is 100 percent.
The extreme degree of concentration beyond which a solute can no longer be dissolved into a solvent or, similarly, in which a substance can no longer be absorbed into another medium.
penetration of all the pores and fissures in soil by water, so that air is excluded.
The soil in which all pore spaces are filled with groundwater .
the point at which a solute can not be further dissolved in a solution
when air holds as much water vapor as it can, occurs when rate of evaporation equals rate of condensation
when the soil holds as much water as it can
the fraction of the effective porosity of the formation that contains a particular phase; more specifically, oil saturation, water saturation, or gas saturation.
The point where no more of a substance can be absorbed, adsorbed, dissolved or retained. When referred to desiccant, saturation occurs when the desiccant material will no longer take on moisture for the condition it is exposed to. For water vapor in air, when saturation occurs, liquid water precipitates (or rains) out of the air-water vapor mixture.
the condition in which soil has as much water in it as it can hold.
the condition of a liquid when it has taken into solution the maximum possible quantity of a given substance at a given temperature and pressure.
(SAT): The saturation moisture content of the soil matrix such that the entire soil porosity is water filled, (%v), and dependant only on the soil texture and unaffected by salinity or gravel.
A solution is saturated when it has dissolved all of the material being dissolved that it is capable of accepting at the temperature existing.
Equilibrium, 100% relative humidity, when an object or the air cannot retain any more water (moisture).
The point at which a solution contains enough of a dissolved solid, liquid, or gas so that no more will dissolve into the solution at a given temperature and pressure.
A condition in soil in which all space between soil particles is filled with water. Such conditions occur after prolonged periods of rainfall or snowmelt, and force any additional rainfall to runoff into streams. Saturation also occurs in earthen levees during floods, a condition that can cause the levees to weaken.
the presence in air of the most water possible under existent pressure and temperature
the degree to which a gas is dissolved in the blood or tissues, full saturation occurs when the pressure of gas dissolved in the blood or tissues is the same as the surrounding pressure of that gas.
A condition of the atmosphere in which a certain volume of air holds the maximum water vapor it can hold at a specific temperature.
In soils, the point at which a soil or aquifer will no longer absorb any amount of water without losing an equal amount.
also called the saturation point – The condition of the water when it has taken into solution the maximum possible quantity of a given substance at a given temperature, alkalinity and pH. Water hardness is calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water. When the water can hold no more of these elements, they deposit or precipitate out of the water causing scale. Other elements that can be saturated in pool and spa water are copper and iron. Usually, as the pH and alkalinity rise, the elements become less soluble causing them to come out of solution.
The condition in the atmosphere where actual water vapour present is the maximum possible at the existing temperature.
The point at which the air can hold no more water vapor given a current set of atmospheric conditions. Saturated air has a relative humidity of 100%.
The percentage of the pore space occupied by a fluid, usually water in hydrologic applications.
The point at which the air cannot hold any more water vapor; the point at which condensation occurs. RH=100%. Saturation is where the amount of water condensing is equal to the amount of water evaporating.
The relative amount of water, oil and gas in the pores of a rock, usually as a percentage of volume.
When a tissue has absorbed all of a given gas at a given depth that it can, it is considered saturated. The amount of dissolved gas a tissue can hold is dependent on the depth at which it is ongassing. The deeper the depth, the greater the amount of ongassing that can occur. As a rule it takes 6 halftimes for a tissue to become 99% saturated.
In water chemistry, means the state of a solution (water) when it holds the maximum equilibrium quantity of dissolved matter at a given temperature and pressure. The limit when no more of a given substance will dissolve.
The condition in which vapor pressure is equal to the equilibrium vapor pressure over a plane surface of pure liquid water, or sometimes ice.
the condition in which the partial pressure of any fluid constituent (water in the atmospheric air) is equal to its maximum possible partial pressure under the existing environmental conditions, such that any increase in the amount of that constituent will initiate within it a change to a more condensed state; evaporation ceases under such conditions.
