A new calculation is elaborated for the description of surface changes of temperature and matter due to coupled transport through a porous medium. It is based on a finite-size supposition (Neumann's type boundary condition) and on the solutions of parabolic type partial differential equations combined with Lambert's W-function. The boundary layer phenomena are also incorporated into the description of the general transport. The procedure leads to a direct computer simulation, providing concrete results on the real physical picture of the given problem in good agreement with some experiments analysed.
