Abstract
It has already been shown (Glover and Robinson 1953a and b) that it is possible to derive a simple estimate of the reliability of rainfall for both annual and seasonal amounts, and provisional maps of the reliability of annual rainfall in East Africa have been published (Glover, Robinson and Henderson, 1954), These maps were used in the Report of the Royal Commission, 1953-1955, as a basis for an assessment of the agricultural potentialities of the three territories, whilst similar maps have since been published on a larger scale by the East African Agriculture and Forestry Research Organization. The object of this paper is to illustrate, with a series of three maps, the reliability of the main rains in Kenya and adjacent parts of Tanganyika.
