  • Estimates made here produce a global mean of about 1.6 mm yr−1, or about 60% of the pure altimetric estimate, of which about 70% is from the addition of freshwater.

  • Accurate planimetric and altimetric surveying of the ram site and its installations is recommended before final development plans are made.

  • Appropriate tables and graphs are used to calculate "unit" friction losses; for this purpose, precise altimetric and planimetric plans containing pipeline layouts provide the best and most complete information (Fig 35).

  • The bases for the design of any pipeline is the graphic plotting of the topographic survey along the pipeline's route in the form of an "altimetric profile" showing the variation in soil elevations from the source to storage, treatment and distribution points.
