The columns could be thought of as large cylinder samples taken from a soil layer near the surface. The “extraction region” could also be part of a formation in a groundwater catchment zone. The structure of this imaginary layer subjectively appears to be a very homogenous crack structure. Twenty five cylinder samples can be classified according to selected hydromechnical and morphometric parameters. At the “extraction points” where PVer is greater, it is found that Md and Rh are also greater, following the relationships shown in the Appendix. The columns can also be arranged so that in addition to the mentioned relationships there is also a connection of the parameters with Fa: in four sequences Fa increases with PVer, Md and Rh. The data also allow the setting-up of four sequences with increasing or decreasing values of Diff, Devq and Sk.
