Abstract
The evidence suggests therefore that there were very high lakes in the Nakuru-Elmenteita basin as recently as 10,000 years ago. As yet, there is not sufficient information for a detailed chronology of lake level fluctuations in the basin. The evidence from this basin shows a general agreement with the sequence suggested by Richardson from his study of a core from the bed of Lake Naivasha. It is hoped that further investigations in these areas will provide more information and enable firm links to be made. Until such correlations can be established between adjacent areas, which at present experience basically similar climatic conditions, it is unwise to put too much faith in wider correlations between areas of very different present day climates.
