The ability of a rock or Earth material to allow passage of water trough it is called:?

A. Porosity B. Sand and gravel C. Limestone and sand D. Coarse and loose sediments


should be permeability. porosity is important to permeability, but holes without connections are pretty freaking useless.

Zardoz: E: None of the above. F

E: None of the above. F: Permeability. Porosity is no guarantee that water will be able to flow. Clay is very porous; but because the pores are so small the film of water adhering to the clay particles leaves little to no room for free water.


B, C, and D are lists of materials, not an "ability".
