A steady flow of a viscous fluid  of finite depth in a porous medium over a fixed horizontal, impermeable  bottom is considered in this paper. Exact solutions of Momentum and Energy equations are obtained when the temperatures on the fixed bottom and on the free surface are prescribed. Flow rate ,Mean velocity , Temperature , Mean Temperature , Mean Mixed Temperature  in the flow region and the Nusselt number  on the boundaries  have been obtained. The cases of  large depth (deep fluid) small depth(shallow fluid)  are discussed. The results are illustrated graphically.
