Format

area

Area of pores space, in pixels out of 256 by 256.

peri

Perimeter in pixels.

shape

Perimeter/sqrt(area).

perm

Permeability in milli-Darcies.

Details

Twelve core samples from petroleum reservoirs were sampled by 4 cross-sections. Each core sample was measured for permeability, and each cross-section has total area of pores, total perimeter of pores, and shape.
