Peter and Erin laying cable and placing electrodes in the Laga (dry river bed) near the Well 4 cluster and several hand dug wells at the north end of Kakua 1. Kakuma 1 was the original camp of the Lost Boys of Sudan when they first arrived, beginning in 1991. Our plan for our first few days of surveying is to tie our lines to existing boreholes so as we can develop confidence in our interpretations of the data.
Paul explaining the plan for the afternoon to 3 Turkana students, from left, William, Asha, and Lokitoe (Loki). All 3 students graduated from IsraAID’s advanced 8 month WASH (WAter, Sanitation, and Hygiene) course, and have already been introduced to field geophysics and water exploration through the course.
