Unformatted text preview: P alone. The significant variations in sediments are usually due to porosity variations and water saturation. Water saturation has no effect on V S (for low porosities) but a significant effect on V P . Porosity and fluid saturation Increasing porosity reduces velocity. Filling the porosity with fluid increases the velocity. M F sat V V V φ − + = 1 1...
