Abstract

THIS treatise, which was presented in the first instance to the Academy of Sciences of Paris in 1903, is divided into two parts, the first theoretical and the second practical, to which a paper has been appended, mainly of a practical nature, on the curves of the discharge of springs and the abatement of river floods. The book is addressed to mathematicians, physicists, geologists, geographers, meteorologists, engineers, and all who are interested in the motion and the distribution of rainfall, both on the surface of the land and underground; and its object is to investigate theoretically and practically the variations in the discharge of springs, and the low-water flow of rivers, in order to be able to foretell the amount of this minimum flow, precisely as the height of the floods of rivers is predicted, as already effected in certain cases by French hydraulicians, such as Dupuit, Belgrand, Lemoine, de Preaudeau and others, and also recently by the author with respect to two of the sources of the River Vanne.
