is a common need in exploration geophysics. Such modeling commonly involves formulation of a set of frame parameters which are then perturbed by the presence of a fluid in the pores. Frame parameters are extracted from laboratory measurements on dry samples meaning samples saturated only with air. The purpose of this study is to investigate if frame parameters can be extracted from air saturated measurements in sandstones, because earlier studies have shown that air may have a non-negligible effect on carbonates due to the high kinematic viscosity of air (Fabricius et al., 2010).
