The velocity and temperature distribution in a system consisting of a fluid layer overlying a layer of porous medium is investigated in the presence of buoyancy and surface tension forces. The analysis indicates that buoyancy and surface tension forces are additive and aid the flow by counteracting the effect of permeability. The temperature distribution is sensitive to the variation of the aspect ratio, and conductivities of the media. Further, the inclusion of the viscous dissipation term markedly affects the temperature distribution.
