THE operations of the French Hydrological Service in the Alps have been so often the subject of notice in these columns that the issue of a fresh volume (tome vi.), bringing the record of results down to the end of the year 1911 for the service in the southern region, does not appear to call for more than passing notice. As is customary, the volume, which is mainly devoted to numerical tables of discharges and other statistical information, commences with a brief description of certain special features in regard to methods of gauging and their adaptation to local conditions. This is followed by a chapter of explanatory remarks on the longitudinal sections and levels contained in the annexe—a case of forty-three plates.
