RH - Relative humidity
Explanation:
"Hur man mäter fukt
RF - Relativ Fuktighet (RH - Relative Humidity). RF talar om hur stort ångtrycket är i förhållande till mättnadsångtrycket.
AF - Absolut Fuktighet (AH - Absolute Humidity). AF mäts i gram vatten per m3 luft."
http://www.lfs-web.se/fukt.htm

"Relativ fuktighet (RF) i material är ett mått på vattnets tillstånd, dvs hur "fuktigt" materialet är. RF i olika material kan jämföras; det kan inte fuktkvoter."
http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukt

"The statement that relative humidity (RH%) can never be above 100%, while a fairly good guide, is not absolutely accurate, without a more sophisticated definition of humidity than the one given here. An arguable exception is the Wilson cloud chamber, which uses, in nuclear physics experiments, an extremely brief state of "supersaturation" to accomplish its function."
