Groundwater

Groundwater is water that is held in the ground.

Porosity vs Permeability

The higher the Porosity the more space in between rocks. The lower the Porosity the more little amount of space between rocks.

The higher Permeability the easier it is for water to pass through rocks. The lower it is the harder it is for water to pass through.
