Infiltration capacity, or rate, determines how much water runs off and how much soaks in during rainfall, although after soil pores become filled, the permeability of soil layers below the surface may control water entry.

The flow of a fluid into a solid substance through pores or small openings; specifically, the movement of water into soil or porous rock. ()
The movement of water into rocks or soil through interstitial pores, small cracks, or crevices in the soil or rock.
The process whereby water enters the soil through the surface.
Infiltration is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil. Infiltration is governed by two forces, gravity, and capillary action. While smaller pores offer greater resistance to gravity, very small pores pull water through capillary action in addition to and even against the force of gravity.
