Abstract

The famous report by engineers Drabbe and Badon Ghijben (1889), on an intended well drilling near Amsterdam (the Netherlands), was one of the key documents that contributed to the Ghijben-Herzberg formula, which links water-table elevation to the depth of the freshwater–saltwater interface in coastal aquifers. The report has been often cited but no English translation has appeared in the literature to date. The aim of this annotated translation of the report is to provide the international scientific community with easier access than was hitherto the case, plus electronic access to the original in Dutch. A brief introduction to the report is provided, followed by a translation that follows the original text as closely as possible.

Résumé

Le célèbre rapport des ingénieurs Drabbe et Badon Ghijben sur le projet de forage d’un puits près d’Amsterdam (Pays Bas), publié en 1889, fut l’un des documents clés qui contribua à la formule de Ghijben-Herzberg qui lie l’altitude du niveau piézométrique à la profondeur de l’interface eau douce – eau salée dans les aquifères côtiers. Le rapport a souvent été cité mais, à la date d’aujourd’hui, aucune traduction n’était disponible dans la littérature. Le but de cette traduction annotée du rapport est. de fournir à la communauté scientifique internationale un accès plus facile que ce qui était le cas jusqu’à présent, ainsi qu’un accès électronique à l’original en hollandais. Une brève introduction au rapport est. fournie, suivie par une traduction, qui suit le texte original du plus près que possible.

Traducción comentada de “Nota in verband met de voorgenomen putboring nabij Amsterdam [Nota relativa a la perforación planificada de pozos cerca de Amsterdam]” por J. Drabbe y W. Badon Ghijben (1889)

Resumen

El famoso informe de los ingenieros Drabbe y Badon Ghijben publicado en 1889, sobre la perforación planificada de pozos cerca de Amsterdam (Países Bajos), fue uno de los documentos clave que contribuyeron a la fórmula Ghijben-Herzberg, que vincula la elevación de la capa freática con la profundidad de la interfaz agua dulce-agua salada en acuíferos costeros. El informe ha sido citado con frecuencia, pero hasta la fecha no ha aparecido ninguna traducción al inglés en la literatura. El objetivo de esta traducción comentada del informe es proporcionar a la comunidad científica internacional un acceso más fácil que hasta ahora, más el acceso electrónico al original en holandés. Se proporciona una breve introducción al informe, seguida de una traducción que sigue el texto original lo más fielmente posible.

对 J. Drabbe和 W. Badon Ghijben (1889) 的“Nota in verband met de voorgenomen putboring nabij Amsterdam [关于阿姆斯特丹附近钻井的报告]“翻译及注解

摘要

由工程师Drabbe 和Badon Ghijben于1889年发表的有关打算在(荷兰)阿姆斯特丹附近钻井的著名报告是对Ghijben-Herzberg公式做出贡献的关键文档之一,Ghijben-Herzberg公式把沿海含水层的水位高程与淡水咸水界面的深度联系在一起。报告经常被引用,但至今文献中仍没有英语翻译文本。带注解的翻译本报告目的就是以比过去更加容易获取的方式向国际科学界提供信息,并且可在网络上查询荷兰语的原文。先是对该报告做了简要的介绍,然后是尽可能地接近原文的翻译文本。

Tradução comentada de “Nota in verband met de voorgenomen putboring nabij Amsterdam [Nota a respeito da intenção de perfuração de poço próximo a Amsterdam]” por J. Drabbe e W. Badon Ghijben (1889)

Resumo

O famoso relatório dos engenheiros Drabbe e Badon Ghijben, lançado em 1889, a respeito da intenção de perfuração de poço próximo a Amsterdam (Países Baixos), foi um dos principais documentos que contribuíram para a fórmula de Ghijben-Herzberg, que liga a elevação do nível freático à profundidade da interface água doce e água salgada em aquíferos costeiros. O relatório foi frequentemente citado, mas nenhuma tradução em inglês apareceu na literatura até o momento. O objetivo desta tradução comentada do relatório é fornecer à comunidade científica internacional um acesso mais fácil do que previamente, além do acesso eletrônico ao original em holandês. Uma breve introdução ao relatório é fornecida, seguida de uma tradução que segue o texto original o mais próximo possível.
