Irrigation Research in India


    THE report for the year 1941 of the Punjab Irrigation Research Institute describes fully the researches on soil grading and soil density, water seepage, movement of silt beds, model investigation of water flow of rivers, weirs and headworks, and land reclamation with particular reference to salt accumulation. In addition to these main researches, many original methods of analysis and measurement are described, and a section deals with the sampling of suspended silt. The volume, which consists of 230 pages and 210 figures or photographs, would be more useful for reference purposes if an index had been provided.
