Apparent permeability Apparent permeability of soil is closely related to intrinsic permeability but somewhat greater Porosity is decreased by moisture in soil Gas slippage (non-zero velocity at solid surfaces) increases transport Intrinsic permeability approximates apparent permeability in absence of site-specific data
