n
(General Physics) physics a measure of the ability of a material to transmit radiation, equal to the internal transmittance of the material under conditions in which the path of the radiation has unit length

The transmissivities and safe yields from hydraulic testing of producing wells 2A, 2B at site 2 and site 4 are summarized in Table 1.
A comparison between actual JASO and DOHA predicted transmissivities show good match in terms of shift to higher resonance frequency and amplitude with decreasing foam thickness.
The glazing transmissivities corresponded to clear glass and tinted glass, while the types corresponded to specular and diffuse (translucent) transmission.
The model developed under this study provides an accurate and complete calculation scheme to support the performance of a shade having various transmissivities and absorptivities.
Of course, in the middle layer (hosting the clouds) we will have to arrange for the different transmissivities and reflectivities of the clouds and interstices, and a careful accounting of all the solar fluxes bouncing back and forth between the surface and the cloud layer does indeed lead to simple weighting with cloud amount n:
Salinities in the range 26 - 28 and transmissivities of less than 50% Tr mark the outer boundary of the Mackenzie plume.
This leads to effective large-scale transmissivities in heterogeneous systems that exceed the geometric mean of the point values, contrary to what multilog-normal stochastic hydrology predicts, even if the point values for transmissivity are log-normally distributed.
