    Abstract: The incidence of river pollution is a common place all over the world. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) presence in the environment is on the increase. Water samples collected from Elelenwo River were analyzed for PAHs concentrations. The analysis was achieved after extraction with dichloromethane and n-hexane in a soxhlet extractor. Thereaf...

    Abstract: Forecast analysis of hydro-climatics data of Nouhao Sub-Basin shows how useful local rain gauges data collected by population during 4 to 7 years in three (03) villages on the experimental site for the local planning and forecasting. The first results show that i) the breakdown of the series determines the seasonality and occurrence of "casual" rai... Show More

    Abstract: 2D electrical resistivity imaging (ERI) and vertical electrical sounding (VES) were integrated to map the subsurface lithology at a pre-engineering construction site in Akure, southwestern Nigeria, in order to ascertain the competence and suitability of the site for engineering structures. Four 2D horizontal profiling (Wenner array) was used to qua... Show More
