    Abstract

    In presenting an interdisciplinary symposium on permeability and ground-water contaminant transport, there is considerable chance for lack of communication between the engineers and scientists of the many different disciplines interested in these subjects. To assist in better communication between the disciplines involved in permeability and capillarity testing of soils and rocks, a glossary and conversion factor tables are provided.

    Nearly 100 terms are listed alphabetically, followed by brief definitions. Where two or more definitions are listed following a term, no significance is placed on the order of presentation. The source is indicated for each definition, and the sources are listed in the reference section following the glossary. Two tables of conversion factors also are presented to assist in conversion of the units used by the various disciplines.
