conductivity

1. the ability to transmit or convey (as heat or electricity). 2. an electrical logging measurement obtained from an induction survey, in which eddy currents produced by an alternating magnetic field induce in a receiver coil a voltage proportionate to the ability of the formation to conduct electricity.

Conductivity

[electrolytic] The conductivity (or specific conductance) of an electrolyte solution is a measure of its ability to conduct electricity. The SI unit of conductivity is siemens per meter (S/m). Conductivity measurements are used routinely in many industrial and environmental applications as a fast, inexpensive and reliable way of measuring t...

Conductivity

a measure of a substance's ability to conduct heat or transmit electrical current. This conduction of energy is proportional to the total ion content of the water at a given temperature. Since conductivity is then a measure of the total salt (ion) content of the seawater, it is used to determine seawater salinity.
