I recently heard Mollison mention a trope in an old lecture... He said that any books relating to it were buried in 1936. Are there any NEW books that have been written on the subject, or are there any good resources available? The web search I conducted was almost suspiciously vacant of helpful results.

Right Now the only source I can find on Trompe Air Compressors and on Air lift Water pumps is Hydraulic Engineering by Gardner Hiscox*
(hydraulic in the old sense of the word, Water power),It contains a single chapter on Air lift pumps and little about the Trompe Air Compressor.

The only place I have found copies for sale is through Knowledge Publications $19.95 U.S.D. ( www.ush2.com Find water power in the -
left hand side index and click on) But it comes with an unconditional money back guarantee !

There is also- Compressed air: Its production, uses, and Applications by Gardner Hiscox, available thru Alibris books or Amazon books.

Some reprints have dropped 70 pages of this book, for the same general price 25-30 $, I would go with University Press of the Pacific !

Caution G.D. Hiscox also compiled Henleys formulas, it is possible in this day and age my typing his name is enough to get this old
retired Soldier. on an F.B.I. or N.S.A. watch list !

Let's see who can add something to this list, Mines and Mining Engineering, should turn up something !

*Don't be confused and get Hydraulic Motors, I don't think that will help! For the Good of all things Permies !

Think like Fire, flow like a gas, Don't be the Marshmallow! as always, questions/comments are solicited and Welcome Pyro - Big AL

I have been told that If two college Type people who are Linked'in ask those people they are linked in with, possibly the Environmental Engineers, we may get some help

Trompe's are being used for water circulation and aeration as parts of stream and creek remediation !

Who can help Here ! Big AL !
