Abstract
At the request of Mr.K.Haukland, Norconsult A.S., Nairobi, a short trip to study the soils around Malindi township was carried out from 5th to 6th December 1q74. This report presents a very preliminary interpretation of the soils. The evaluation is based on only 6 auger hole observations and a few measurements of soil salinitv and soil reaction the chemical laboratory data will be submitted as soon as available. No aerial photographs have" been used to allocate the representative observation sites (due to shortage of time for the preparation). However, the geological report No.36 of the Malindi area and the attachec1 geological map supply basic and satisfactory information of the main soil units of the area and their distribution. Using the geological report, four soil units were given special attention.
