Where does one start to dig to make sure that the qanat tunnel will move with water? How are useful concerns of panorama factored into the layout? How are water caliber and discharge measured? How does excavation continue via bedrock and unconsolidated soil and the way is that this wisdom of geology and pedology bought? How are vertical wells and tunnels excavated to take care of right air provide, gentle, and water movement? How does one take care of unique difficulties like tunnel cave in, the buildup of gasses and vapors, and the pooling of water in the course of building? How are instruments and gauges designed, maintained, and used? How have qanats been included into different constructions like watermills, reservoirs, ice homes, and irrigation networks? and the way are qanats wiped clean, prolonged, maintained during the a long time, and integrated into sleek water supplies?

The nice contribution of this paintings is the tale it tells of the ingenuity and sensible abilities of the qanat masters who for hundreds of years and generations have reduce an uncountable variety of tunnels via bedrock and alluvium utilizing hand instruments and homespun recommendations to difficulties that will vex the main skilled university-trained engineers.
