Best answer

In hydrology, it is the process by which water on the ground surface enters the soil.

Infilitration(I think) is kind of like something invading or coming into another object.

The dictionary ( a great helpwink) said infilitration is the act or process of infiltrating.

Hopefully my first definition helps you!
