    The spatial distribution of porosity and continuity of pore space in glass bead and soil aggregate systems has been characterised by application of computer-assisted tomography to gamma-ray attenuation measurements. It has been demonstrated that a useful empirical relationship between hydraulic conductivity and pore size and continuity for the glass bead system as measured by CAT scanning can be derived.
