The series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major subject headings called "Books" and further subdivided into sections and chapters. Section A of Book 3 is on surface water techniques.
The unit of publication, the Chapter, is limited to a narrow field of subject matter. This format permits flexibility in revision and publication as the need arises. Chapter A21 of Book 3 (TWRMA21) deals with stream-gaging cable-ways.
Provisional drafts and chapters are distributed to field offices of the U.S. Geological Survey for their use. These drafts are subject to revision because of experience in use or because of advancement in knowledge, techniques, or equipment. After the technique described in a chapter is sufficiently developed, the chapter is published and is for sale by the U.S. Geological Survey, Information Services, Box 25286, Federal Center, Denver, CO 80225.
