Looking for Bathymetric map of Lake Tanganyika

Post by Adrian Indermaur » Thu Dec 20, 2012 3:33 am

Hy everyone,

this is a bit of topic but anyway.... I am looking for a bathymetric map of the lake for part of my work. Does anyone here have such a thing? Should be the whole lake since I do have one for the southern most tip of the lake.

Many thanks in advance!

A full bathymetric map is very hard to come by I discovered... The best I can find is a quite coarse grained one from Scholz et al. 2007:
Scholz, C., Johnson, T., Cohen, A., King, J., Peck, J., Overpeck, J., Talbot, M.,
Brown, E., Kalindekafe, L., Amoako, P., Lyons, R., Shanahan, T., Castaneda, I.,
Heil, C., Forman, S., McHargue, L., Beuning, K., Gomez, J. & Pierson, J. (2007).
East African megadroughts between 135 and 75 thousand years ago and bearing on
early-modern human origins. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 104,
16416{16421.

If you find a better one please let me know :D

Cheers!
