The School of Environmental Studies was created in July It conducts teaching and research over the broad range of areas which is crucial to understanding the interactions between the natural and human components of the environment. We train environmental and human scientists and managers, conduct research on key sustainability questions, and interact with government, communities and. There are five major drainage basins: Lake Victoria, the Rift Valley, the Athi-Galana-Sabaki River (and Coastal areas to its south), the Tana River and the northern Ewaso Ng’iro. Kenya only has a small part of Lake Victoria’s water surface, but the Kenya catchment contributes a disproportionate 33% of its surface inflow, some million.

Rising from the floor of the Great Rift Valley like a monolith is the extinct volcano of Mount Longonot. A unique feature is the thick forest that lies within the crater of the mountain. The crater rim also provides great scenic views across the beautiful Rift Valley all the way to Lake Naivasha. The area is known as being part of the Great Rift Valley System, where the movement of the tectonic plates slowly pulls the African continent apart, and Lake Naivasha is therefor one of the many East African lakes, which, when the process evolves, will merge to create the East African Sea.

About this book. This Studies of Lake Naivasha the first comprehensive study of an east African lake for thirty years. It represents the culmination of research expeditions which stretch back twenty years and is thus able to pick up long term changes which the individual research activities do not reveal.

Lake Naivasha is a tropical lake whose natural fluctuations are now dwarfed by human impacts. Lake Naivasha is a freshwater lake in Kenya, outside the town of Naivasha in Nakuru County, which lies north west of is part of the Great Rift name derives from the local Maasai name Nai'posha, meaning "rough water" because of the sudden storms which can e depth: 6 m (20 ft).

It is one of a series of 23 major lakes in the East Rift Valley – eight in centralEthiopia, a fur-ther eight in Kenya. The lake is in a semi-arid area of Kenya. Its depth has reduced from 8 m in to m in due to siltation resulting from high erosion rates in the catchment.

Abstract. Prior studies on Lake Naivasha relevant to understanding sediment dynamics include a bathymetric map, a paleolimnological study of fossil invertebrate assemblages in lake sediment, an overview of lake level fluctuations throughout the 20th century, and identification of a dynamic assemblage of macrophyte zones that has responded both to these changes in lake level and to more.
