Glossary:Permeability barrier

A barrier to movement of a fluid through the rock. This may be a change in the rock where the pores are no longer connected or even present, or secondary mineral growth that filling in the pore throats and natural fractures. In one sense, a permeability barrier may be another rock that acts as a seal.
