Abstract
Land cover in the Lake Nakuru drainage basin and Eastern Mau Forest Reserve has been changing at different spatial and temporal scales. The changes, especially forest conversion, have interfered with the provi sion of ecosystem services, e.g., carbon sequestration. To mitigate the adverse impacts of the land cover changes and determine the future landscape scenario for environmental sustainability, reliable, consistent, multi-temporal , and spatially-explicit infonnation on the state of land cover and other biophysical variables (e.g., soil properties, biodiversity) is necessary. Unfortunately, the archives of such information for this specific area, and Kenya in general, are poor.
