Water Balance of the Niger Basin
A map-based method is used to construct a monthly water balance model of the 2.3 million km Niger River basin in West Africa. The watersheds and stream network within the basin are derived...

On the Ecology and Sustainability of Penaeid Shrimp (Coastal) Fishing in Nigeria
The Nigerian coastline which is about 850-km long is indented with lagoon systems in the West, extensive mangrove swamp and a delta complex (Niger delta) which opens to the sea through...

Anthropogenic Activities Affecting Sediment Load Balance Along the West African Coastline
The west African coastline stretches from Senegal in the west-to Cameroon in the east. This coastline had naturally over time received most of its sediments through the numerous rivers...

Factors Responsible for Varying Granulometric Characteristics of Sediments from the Western Nigeria Coastline
The western Nigeria coastline stretches from Badagry in the west (Longitude 5°00'00E), covering a distance of about 275km. Two major geomorphic coastal units are recognized along this...

Benthnic Foraminifera Diversity in the Bonny Estuary, Niger Delta, Nigeria
The Bonny estuary is the most exploited in the Niger Delta. Several Oil fields, production platforms and flow stations are located within the estuary. Apart from these industrial uses,...

Recent Bentthic Foraminifera as a Sedimentation Tool in the Nigerian Coastal Environment
The ratio between the living and total populations of benthic foraminifera has been shown to be useful in determining relative rates of sedimentation in paralic and marine environments....

Dynamics of Mangrove Ecosystem along the Nigerian Coastline
The mangrove brackish water ecosystem along the Nigeria coastline is dominated by the Niger delta and the Astrand coastal area in the east covering an area of about 2003.49 km. Other areas...

Implications of Environmental Dynamics for Sustainable Environment and Resources Management Futures in the Niger Delta
The paper examines the implications of environmental dynamics for environmental sustainability and resources management futures. The paper first discusses the concept and characteristics...

Geomorphology of the Lekki Barrier-Lagoon Coastline in Nigeria and its Vulnerability to Rising Sea Level
The Lekki barrier-lagoon coast stretches from Lagos (approx. long. 3°25'00E) to Ajumo town (approx. long. 4° 26'00E) a distance over 75km around 6°.25'00N...

Towards a Rainfall Estimation Using Meteosat Over Africa
The scope of the research is to develop a method of rainfall estimation at both small space and time scales (9 pixels -225 km2-, and single shower...

Blasting Densifies Sand
Constructing the Jebba Dam on Nigeria's Niger River required in-place densification of large volumes of loose sand to record depths of up to 131 ft. Vibrocompaction was used...

Stoplog Closure—Model Prototype Correlation
Hydraulic model tests give accurate solutions to problems involving complicated flow conditions but designers should adopt designs which avoid unpredictable situations. To achieve one...
