we made an attempt to analyze the soret effect on convective heat and mass transfer through a porous medium in a vertical channel. The dissipative effects are also taken in to account . Assuming Eckkert number much less than 1,the governing equations are solved and the velocity, temperature, concentration, shear stress and rate of heat and mass transfer are analyzed for various parameters.
