Figure F41. A. Relationship between two methods of porosity calculation: Method C (measurement of wet mass, dry mass, and dry volume) and Method D (measurement of wet volume, dry volume, and dry mass). Both methods yield similar results (within a few percent), but Method D tends to yield higher porosities. B. Method C porosities of samples in Hole U1352C, separated into indurated samples collected with the minicorer (blue circles) and soft samples collected with a syringe (yellow circles).
