Chemical Analyses of Water from Dew Ponds


I HAVE been interested in the reviews of books and articles which have appeared in NATURE from time to time on the subject of dew ponds; and it occurred to me that the chemical analysis of the water of these ponds would help to settle the question of the origin of the water. This is a method used to some extent by sanitary authorities. I have had the opportunity of obtaining some specimens of water from different districts, and the specimens have been analysed by Mr. Claude Saville Grace, one of the students at this institute.
