The second module – The Geology of the Turkana Basin- kicked off yesterday. Students first learned how to use the Brunton compass to map areas. Their first assignment was to map the 100 acre TBI compound. Students had to measure distances among structures such as the fence and buildings, and had to use the compass to determine accurate orientation to produce a birds-eye view map of the compound. This sounds easier than it is, but after working hard under the hot sun, all students produced excellent maps.
