Can gasses pass through a gas permeable tile if there is a layer of liquid on it?

Not sure how the game mechanics would handle this situation.

Im pretty sure they cant, people use water as an airlock of sorts but I think we should wait till a veteran clarifies.

Well, it's not going to pass 'through' if there's liquid on the other side blocking it, since liquid and gas can't exist freely in the same tile.  It probably will exist 'within' the tile, since the water cannot.  Are you trying to get the gas to circulate within the permeable tiles in some unusual way?

Sure they can, they just can't pass through the liquid. The tile has four sides, the water is only on one of them so the gas can go three remaining ways.

Thank you all for the responses. My follow-up question would be: what happens if a gas, like steam, reaches a condensation temperature while inside a gas-permeable tile?

It condenses and "ruins" the tile until the liquid is removed. At least that's what happened last time when I put gas permeable tiles near steam.
