With an appendix on geology by Peter Dargue
Dates of the Expedition: 27 February - 29 March 1986
The Society had planned to make a return visit to Oman in January–February 1986 but were thwarted at a late stage. However it was possible to divert the expedition to Belize at short notice. As it had not been possible to send an advanced party and as the team had been preparing for a desert environment, some considerable reorientation, reorganization and retraining were required. A team of 12 departed the UK on 26th February for Belize and were joined on arrival by two RAFOS members serving there.
