Porous also known as Porosity, is said to be measure present in the void spaces of a material, this Porosity is measured as a fraction ranging between 0 to 1 or as per cent that ranges from 0 to 100 per cent. The term Porosity is used in many different types of fields that include construction, manufacturing and earth sciences.

Porosity is indirectly connected to Hydraulic Conductivity, for example; between two similar types of sandy aquifers, the one aquifer that has a higher prosperity will also have a higher amount of hydraulic conductivity which means more open area is available for the flow of the water, however its not that easy to determine as there are many complications present in this.
