Primary author or editorWilson, Arnold Talbot
DescriptionArnold Talbot Wilson explores the importance of qanat systems, or underground tunnels. He believed the subterranean tunnels were more beneficial than fields irrigated by streams due to decreased loss through evaporation. Similar to Egypt, who is positioned at the delta of the Nile, Wilson asserts that Iran can use qanats to harness the resources of the Helmand.
