Abstract : A study was made of the relationships between the soil cover and ground water using aerial photographs taken in different landscape areas in the Northern Caspian Lowland and Turkemenia. The work was done in key areas together with geobotanical, geomorphological and hydrological studies. It was found that a study of the soil cover (thickness of genetic horizons, color, moisture content, humus content, content of salts, etc., as well as the characterisitics of the structure and mechanical composition of the soils) gives information on the character and depth of ground water. Soils beneath which fresh ground water is situated close to the surface appear on aerial photographs in dark tones. (Author)
