  • Wrench Tectonism and Intracontinental Basin Sedimentation: A Case Study of
           the Moku Sub-Basin, Upper Benue Trough, Nigeria

    • Abstract: The Upper Benue trough of Nigeria consists of basins and horsts characterized by numerous structural features. Detailed study of one of the basins revealed sets of “centimetric”, riedel type “en-echelon” NE-SW trending strike slip faults contained in a number of brittle and ductile shear zones characterizing the basement/sediment boundary. Structural analysis suggests that the Moku sub-basin has been pulled apart along a releasing bend in between NE – SW strike slip faults and that three principal axes of stress were acting on the sub-basin during its formation. The maximum stress (1) with orientation 34/304 was responsible for the fault overlap (basin length), whereas the minimum stress (σ_3) with orientation 18/201 controlled the fault separation (basin width). These suggest a qualitative model showing the Moku sub-basin as a separate basin, which must have coalesced with adjacent sub-basins. Deposition of Bima sediments in the basin was closely controlled by tectonism. The immature B1 sediments are restricted mostly to the faulted margin of the basin. The more matured B2 and B3 sediments are distributed around the less disturbed areas.

  • Topographic Map Analysis of Mountain Passes Crossing the Continental
           Divide Between Colorado River Headwaters and North and South Platte River
           Headwaters to Test a New Geomorphology Paradigm, Colorado, USA

    • Abstract: Detailed topographic maps are used to identify and briefly describe named (and a few unnamed) mountain passes crossing high elevation east-west continental divide segments encircling south- and southwest-oriented Colorado River headwaters and linking the Colorado River drainage basin (draining to the Pacific Ocean) with the North and South Platte River drainage basins (draining to the Platte, Missouri, and Mississippi Rivers and Gulf of Mexico). Previous researchers following commonly accepted geomorphology paradigm rules have not explained how most, if any of these mountain passes originated. A recently proposed geomorphology paradigm requires all Missouri River drainage basin valleys to have eroded headward across massive south- and southeast-oriented floods, which implies south- and southeast-oriented floods flowed from what are today north-oriented North Platte River headwaters across the continental divide, the present-day south- and southwest-oriented Colorado River headwaters valley, and then across what is now the continental divide a second time to reach east- and southeast-oriented South Platte River headwaters. Paradigms are rules determining how a scientific discipline governs its research and by themselves are neither correct nor incorrect and are judged on their ability to explain observed evidence. From the new paradigm perspective, a stream eroded each of the passes into a rising mountain range until the uplift rate outpaced the erosion rate and forced a flow reversal in what would have been the upstream valley. The passes and the valleys leading in both directions from the continental divide are best explained if diverging and converging south- and southeast-oriented flood flow channels crossed rising mountain ranges. While explaining observed drainage patterns and erosional landforms such an interpretation requires a fundamentally different regional middle and late Cenozoic glacial and geologic history than what previous investigators using the accepted paradigm perspective have described.

  • Use of Ground Penetrating Radar, Hydrogeochemical Testing, and Aquifer
           Characterization to Establish Shallow Groundwater Supply to the
           Rehabilitated Ni-les’tun Unit Floodplain: Bandon Marsh, Coquille
           Estuary, Oregon, USA

    • Abstract: Fluvial-tidal wetlands in the Ni-les’tun Unit (~200 hectares) of the Bandon Marsh, Coquille Estuary, Oregon, were analyzed for shallow aquifer conditions that could influence surface water-qualities in reconstructed marsh, pond, and discharge/tidal channels. The wetlands were surveyed for pre-historic channel features, depth to groundwater surface (GWS), and subsurface salinity intrusion by ground penetrating radar (GPR) in 50 profiles, totaling 11.1 km in track line distance. Only small flood-discharge/tidal channel features (

  • Flood Impacts in Oshana Region, Namibia: A Case Study of Cuvelai River
           Basin

    • Abstract: Floods are among the global natural disasters that are known to have major negative societal effects. The extent of floods can determine the degree of impact to be made. Floods can cause extensive economic losses, consequently affecting livelihoods, businesses, infrastructures and basic services. This study investigated the impact of floods in communities within the Oshana Region in the northern areas of Namibia. Primary and secondary data were collected in efforts to understand the impact of floods, and the causes of vulnerability to such events. Loss of field crops, destruction of houses, destruction of roads and other infrastructure, and loss of human lives were the major flood impacts that have been identified. The study findings revealed that vulnerability to floods is mainly due to lack of resources, poverty, poor infrastructure, limited budget, inactive disaster risk management structures in the region, rapid population change, non-existing Early Warning System (EWS), lack of awareness of the flood impacts, low income, and the fact that many houses are headed by females. In the absence of coping strategies, communities mainly depend on external relief, particularly for temporary shelter and provision of basic needs. It was concluded that the ability of communities and individuals to cope with flood impacts is related to their culture, history, knowledge system, power dynamics and governance. A further conclusion was that, the vulnerability of communities in the Oshana Region resulted in reduced household resilience to flood disasters.The study recommended a further investigation into other flood prone regions in Namibia. Other notable recommendations included:• the availing of information on climate variability and best coping strategies in flood prone communities,• flood hazards awareness,• developing and implementing mitigation measures for flood disasters,• development of a policy on the construction of houses in efforts to avoid flood risks,• and the development of information communication channels for EWS.

  • Investigation of Groundwater Quality from Selected Wells in Paiko,
           Northcentral Nigeria

    • Abstract: Groundwater from hand dug wells and boreholes in Paiko, northcentral Nigeria were subjected to physico-chemical as well as microbiological analysis to determine their suitability for drinking purpose. The water from the hand dug wells are predominantly calcium magnesium chloride (Ca-Mg-Cl) water while those from boreholes are calcium magnesium bicarbonate water (Ca-Mg-HCO3) facies. The results showed elevated cations and anions concentration in the hand dug wells in addition to the water being slightly acidic. Also, the nitrate concentration in the hand dug wells is above the maximum permissible limit of 50mg/l postulated by World Health Organization (WHO) and Nigerian Standard for Drinking Water Quality (NSDQ). Microbiological analysis revealed Total Coliform Count of 100cfu and 360cfu in the hand dug wells and borehole respectively signifying faecal contamination. The study revealed that improper sewage systems as well as poor waste disposal is responsible for the poor water quality as well as elevated concentration of nitrate in hand dug wells, and as such the shallow aquifer groundwater in the area are not safe for drinking purpose with respect to all the parameters taken together.
