##### Reference no: EM13310692

A homogeneous coarse sand deposit has a water table at 10 m depth. The water coefficient of permeability of the sand is found to vary significantly with height above the water table even though the sand deposit is homogeneous. Briefly explain the reason for the variation of the water coefficient of permeability above the water table.
