||A bibliography of 986 references with accompanying text that reviews broadly such topics as water quality and the total drainage basin, salinity prevention and soil reclamation, salinity and drought effects on plants, soil and water salts, basic water balance problems in relation to irrigation, plus a perspective on historic salinity problems and an overview. Socioeconomic aspects are considered, with reference to the Colorado River basin as an example in microcosm. There is discussion of currently used and potential ameliorative techniques that would render current methods more efficient, raise productivity enough to constitute a breakthrough, and high-humidity low water-use greenhouse structures that would radically alter current arid lands irrigation methods.
