Theoretical developments based on heat and moisture transfer in soil lead to dimensionless numbers that describe important processes taking place in porous media. It is proposed that these numbers can be used as preliminary scientific criteria for scaling the results from microcosms both as a means of comparing two generally similar but non-identical systems as well as for better understanding the real world.
