Transcript of our peat swamps are situated in thinly populated districts remote from industrial centres will be obviated by the satisfactory solution of the problem of long-distance transmission of electrical current. Water Power Resources of the U.S.S.R. The next source of energy is the force of flowing or falling water which represents transformed heat energy received by the earth from the sun. By virtue of this energy huge volumes of water in the shape of vapour are raised from the surface of oceans, seas, lakes, etc., and condensed in the upper strata of the atmosphere and precipitated back to earth. The return movement of these masses of water to the seas, oceans, lakes, etc., assumes the form of rivers, brooks and other flowing bodies of water. This energy of water returning to its original bed is utilised by man. The magnitude of this force depends upon the quantity of water in motion and the height of its fall, and may be expressed in the following very simple formula: F = 0 . 75 X 1 000 75 QH where Q is the quantity of water in motion in cubic metres per second, H is the height of the fall in metres (75 kilogram-metres per second = 1 horse-power). Quantitatively, Q depends on the amount of atmospheric precipitation, or the degree of irrigation, while H depends on the topography of the country. Applying this formula, it will be possible to fix upon a number of localities in the vast territory of our Union that contain stores of water power of varying potentialities. First place must here be conceded to the Caucasus, which possesses a large expanse of water irrigating the 4*
