During, the planning; of the EAAFRO experiments, designed to assess the hydrological Effects of changes in land use, it was apparent That the "classical" method of controlled waters: Led experiment, such as the Wagon Wheel Gap experiments (Bates, 1911; Bates and Henry, 1928), required an experimental period of such length that the questions originally Posed may have become irrelevant before such Experiments were completed. Decisions were Already being taken on the future development of many areas in East Africa and it remained For the scientists to monitor the effects of these Land management policies, to conduct controlled Experiments in certain critical areas to assess effects of land use change, and to produce considered judgments on future policy which had a bearing on water availability and water conservation.
