Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Percolation theory is a mathematical model that has been used in the past by physicists to study a variety of physical processes such as fluid flow and electrical conduction. In this short note, we favorably review a new book describing the use of percolation theory for modeling the flow of fluids in soils and other porous media.
