Abstract:

The saturometer measures the total dissolved gas pressure present in solutions such as in rivers, lakes, and other water bodies. A di-methyl silicone rubber tubing, permeable to gases and water vapor, is immersed in the water and a precision pressure gauge coupled to the tubing measures the internal pressures produced by gas components diffusing into the bore through the membrane wall.
