Neutron porosity

Porosity well log based on slowing down and capture of neutrons by the hydrogen contained in the subsoil formations. This technique allows registering the correct porosity for specific formations, (limestone, sandstone, dolomite), assuming that formation pores are fluid-filled and in units related to formation type (vol/vol or u.p.). The measurement is statistical and based on thermal neutron detection, so precisions is higher for high counting speed, i.e. low porosity.
