hydrogen index

1. n. [Formation Evaluation]
The number of hydrogen atoms per unit volume divided by the number of hydrogen atoms per unit volume of pure water at surface conditions. The hydrogen index (HI) is thus the density of hydrogen relative to that of water. It is a key factor in the response of a neutron porosity log.
