Limnology, Climatology and Paleoclimatology of the East African Lakes

Etukansi
CRC Press, 1.10.1996 - 456 sivua
Contains selected papers presented at a symposium at Jinja, Uganda in February 1993 which was organized by IDEAL, the International Decade for East African Lakes, a ten-year, multi- national, multi-disciplinary investigation of the biological, geological, chemical, and physical limnology of the East African Lakes, with an emphasis on the Great Lakes of the East African Rift Valley and the climatology and paleoclimatology of the Rift Valley itself. The 37 contributions address tectonic settings of the East African lakes, the East African climate, physical limnology, aquatic chemistry, food webs and fisheries, sedimentary processes, the impact of humans, and a historical note.
