The theory of convective diffusion has been applied to transport of salt through clay columns. An expression was derived for salt distribution within the column for steady state conditions.

Data from the literature were used to test the applicability of the distribution function to clay systems. The observed nonlinearity is described to high precision by the equation. However, some discrepancy occurs between calculated and measured parameters.
