Studies on sub-soil characteristics of sand deposits in some parts of Bayelsa State, Eastern Niger Delta, Nigeria

Sub-surface investigation was undertaken by drilling boreholes within and along the Nun River Channel covering three communities of Kaiama, Opokuma and Sabagreia, Bayelsa State, Nigeria. The route extent was over 5 km long and the study was necessitated to provide materials as structural fills for road construction purposes. Eight boreholes were drilled in the three locations to a maximum depth of 14 m from the river...

Distribution of cyanide in a cassava-mill-effluent polluted eutric tropofluvent soils of Ohaji area, South-eastern Nigeria

This study investigates on the distribution of cyanide on a cassava- mill- effluent polluted eutric tropofluvent soil in Ohaji Southern Nigeria. Three morphological land units were marked out namely, the background unit (pedon A), discharged point unit (pedon B) (the effluent receiving unit) and downstream unit (pedon C). Soil sample collection was carried out in five replicates in May 2007 adopting a randomized...

Spatial variability mapping of some soil properties in El-Multagha agricultural project (Sudan) using geographic information systems (GIS) techniques

Soil surveying and mapping is an important operation, since it plays a key role in the knowledge about soil properties and how it can be used for agriculture, irrigation, urbanization and other land uses. This study was carried out in order to map out some soil characteristics in the Northern State in resettlement projects associated with the newly established Merowe Dam. Some physical and chemical properties of the...
