Description:

This resource gives data figures from an article published in Nature, Vol. 34, presenting a decade-scale reconstruction of rainfall and drought in equatorial east Africa over the past 1,100 years, based on lake-level and salinity fluctuations of Lake Naivasha, Kenya. Interpretations were inferred from lithology and taxonomic composition of midge and diatom populations (from cores). The first graph shows lithology and taxonomic counts as well as conductivity (mS/cm) and percentage of organic Carbon plotted against lake depth. The second shows the relationship between historical events and lake chemistry/ biology 900-2000 AD. A link to the World Data Center's page for this study, giving core depth and conductivity (HTML) and listing citation information, is also provided.
