Part of an airborne gephysical survey carried flown between December 1981 and February 1982. Data was collected for the Kerio valley and North East Kenya. A selection of maps were produced for each area includinga survey index map: a band pass filter magnetic field, equivalent thorium, potassium concentration contours, flight path and location maps, magnetic, radiometric interpretation, residual magnetic field contours, secondary residual magnetic field contours and profiles and target maps.
These maps are a selection of the scanned report maps and inserts. They have been gathered at vaious scales and are fully described in their source reports.
Series of 1: 100 000 scale topographic maps pubished between 1958 and 1978. Data was collated and published by War office and Air Ministry (United Kingdom) subsequently Ministry of Defence (United Kingdom)[GSGS]; Survey Kenya [SK]; Directorate of Overseas Surveys for the Kenya Government [D.O.S.] .
