Definition: Free water is that portion of the pore water that is free to move between interconnected pores under the influence of gravity  IPAPermafrost 

Free Water is that portion of the pore water that is free to move between interconnected pores under the influence of gravity. The term Free Water also covers water in fissures, solution channels, and other openings in soils or rocks. The temperature at which Free Water will change phase depends primarily on its dissolved-solids content, which determines the Freezing Point depression.  TrombottoGeocryology
