Research Interest

Topic: Lower Atmosphere Physics And Space Weather


Climate change processes at the boundary layer of earth through measurement of fluctuations and Trends identification of meteorology parameters over a tropical setting. Investigations of Sensible and Ground heat flux, Evaporation, Momentum and Radiation transfer is being studied to understand Climate situations over the surface at local in Nigeria.

Current Research

Test for homogeneity of meteorological data collected at over 24 stations across Nigeria including records of temperature, rainfall lightening and humidity

Research Details

This study uses transfer models over all spectrum of radiation and considers absorption, scattering and surface albedo processes. For the selected study areas, we hope to obtain geoelectrical data using PASI Earth

Resistivity meter, model 16-GL. A combination of Vertical Electrical Soundings using the

square array, horizontal profiling and 2D electrical measurements would be undertaken. The

main aim is to detect the aquifer zones and the different subsurface successions. The survey

areas will be georeferenced by Global Positioning System (GPS). Subsequently, NMR

measurements would be undertaken at potential locations delineated from the interpretation

of the electrical resistivity measurements. Finally, computer based-machine learning will be

used to as a predictive tool to enhance the potential groundwater zone.
