DescriptionSir Aurel Stein's account focuses on Hamun lake and the Band-i-Seistan. Hamun lake, which fluctuates throughout the year, produces fertile soil noted for its lack of salt. However, with the shifting bed of the Helmand river, areas once thriving have become desert. Stein recommends the usage of barrages to control and divert river discharge to previously abandoned plots.
