    Abstract: Lead (Pb), Cadmium (Cd) and Arsenic (As) have been known as a malicious environment and their toxic effects for plants, animals and humans has been demonstrated. This metals in soil have a different behaviours. The normal concentrations of Cd, As and Pb in agricultural soil were 1.1, 20 and 67 mg.kg-1 respectively. In situ immobilization of Lead an...

    Abstract: This research investigates the recording of Land Surface Temperature (LST) by Earth Observation (EO) Satellites for four gas flaring sites in Rivers State, Nigeria. Six Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) and Eleven Landsat 7 Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) from 17 January 1986 to 08 March 2013 with < 5% cloud contamination were considered. All the sites are located within a single Landsat scene (Path 188, Row 057). Dark Object Subtraction (DOS) method and Atmospheric Correction Parameter (ATMCORR) Calculator were used to obtain atmospheric correction effects parameters for multispectral and thermal bands [Upwelling radiance (Lu), downwelling radiance (Ld) and transmittance (...
