English term or phrase:patchy (in this context)
En un texto sobre medición de la permeabilidad en pozos petroleros:
"Of the six low-porosity intervals on the logs, only two had permeabilities below 1 mD. Two others were patchy with significant permeability, one with k,> khatX151 ft. In this particular test, the small pressure response at the probes (less than 0.5 psi [3.5 kPa]) could be explained only by a superpermeability layer between packer and probe."
"Patchy" se refiere a una característica de la formación geológica en donde está el pozo, pero no puedo dar con la palabra exacta.
