      Abstract: Variability of potential evapotranspiration due to climate change is presently causing alterations in the global hydrological cycle with devastating effect on the water requirements of crops. This study evaluated the trend and decadal variability of the potential evapotranspiration in Oluyole Local Government Area for one climatic period ranging between 1991 and 2020. Meteorological data, which include the maximum and minimum temperature, were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center POWER Project portal. These data were applied to estimate the potential evapotranspiration of the study area using the Thornthwaite equation. Thereafter normality test was performed using a coefficient of skewness and kurtosis, trend assessment was performed using the Mann Kendal method, while the significance of decadal variability was assessed using the One-sample t-test and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The results reveal that the annual trend of potential evapotranspiration for the period of 1991 and 2020 was accepted as indicative of normality at 95% confidence level, while a positive non-significant (p > 0.05) trend was observed during the study period. The study further unravelled that potential evapotranspiration in the first decade was lesser than the long-term mean average of 1498.64 mm, while the proceeding decades recorded slightly higher average values. The t-test and ANOVA revealed that the variations from the long-term average were not statistically significant in the study period. There is the need to pay critical attention to these alterations in order to satisfy crop water requirements.

  • Loss of Wetlands in Lagos (Nigeria) and the adjacent territory:
           Implications for flood control

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Augustine O. Israel
      Pages: 10 - 21
      Abstract: Population growth, with its concomitant pressure for more housing developments and eventual urban sprawl have been touted as chief contributors to the problem of urban flooding in Lagos (Nigeria). It has, therefore, become necessary in the light of the frequent flooding in Lagos in the recent years, to study one major surface feature by which nature has always managed the occasional abundant surface water flow (flooding) within the urban space - wetlands. Landsat TM and Sentinel-2 images obtained via remote sensing and processed with ENVI software were used to study the loss of wetlands in the Lagos conurbation and the adjoining areas within the last 30 years to see how this loss of wetlands has impacted the ability of the environment to manage superfluous surface water flow. Using the Supervised Maximum Likelihood classifier technique, it was found that within the 30-year period, the study area has lost about 59% (representing about 540.8 Km2) of its original area mainly to the built-up area, ostensibly for housing and infrastructural development. The implications of this tragic situation for flood control and other ecosystem services are discussed. Recommendations have also been put forth for future research.

  • Assessment of Heavy Metal Pollution of Wetland Soils in Ijokodo, Oyo
           State, Nigeria

      Pages: 22 - 28
      Abstract: Wetlands soils play significant roles in agricultural food production, but are susceptible to heavy metal contamination from recharge waters and/or agrochemicals. This study investigated distribution and level of pollution of heavy metal in soils of Ijokodo wetland, Oyo state, Southwest Nigeria. Twenty soil samples (top and sub soils) were collected randomly within the wetland in October, 2019 and analyzed for Mn, Fe, Cu, Zn, Pb, Cd, Co, Cr and Ni using standard methods. The degree of heavy metal pollution was assessed by comparing metal concentrations to sediment quality guidelines and soil quality thresholds. The results show that soil within the Ijokodo wetland is moderately polluted with cadmium and nickel at concentrations that could cause adverse impact to the wetland ecosystem. The correlation matrix and PCA both show recharge waters, agricultural inputs and parent rock composition as important sources of metals in the wetland. The presence of heavy metals in wetland soils above permissible limits is of human health concern and calls for continuous monitoring of Ijokodo wetland soils to check heavy metal enrichment above the accepted regulatory limits.

      Abstract: Nigerian rainfall is critical for domestic use through the surface and sub-surface recharge and agricultural production, mostly rain-fed. Analysing three (3) long-term precipitation data (Rain Gauges, CHIRPSv2.0, and TAMSATv3) is vital to account for hydrological extremes in other design and operations of water systems and agricultural monitoring. This study analysed (i) the spatiotemporal variability of rainfall amounts focusing on inter-annual and seasonal variability, and (ii) average monthly rainy days for the period of 39 years (1981-2019). Temporal distribution was analysed using descriptive statistics. The kriging interpolation method in ArcGIS 10.4 was used to map the spatial distribution of rainfall amounts and wet-dry days. Findings revealed that the Southern part contributes 65.3 per cent to the total annual rainfall, and June - November rain contributes 76.6 per cent. 39 years climatological average of the total number of 14,244 days showed the least (57) and highest (235) monthly rainy days observed in the north and south. During June, July and August months, most parts of the country received rain with varying intensities, while the decline begins in September from the north-east and reaches the south in November. Rainfall amounts and rainy days increased from the north to the south and vice versa, except July, August, and September. Accurate and detailed rainfall observations are required and essential for many applications. Therefore, satellite precipitation estimates can be used as alternative sources of input data in many meteorological and hydrological applications, especially in Nigeria, characterised by a low density of rain gauge stations.

      Pages: 43 - 59
      Abstract: This study examined the characteristics of meteorological, agricultural and hydrological droughts, and their implications on agricultural planning and water resources management in Kaduna River Basin. To establish the extent of climate variability and drought, archival temperature, rainfall and streamflow data between 1990 and 2018 were sourced from Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET), Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA), Kaduna State Water Board and Shiroro Hydro-Electric Power Station for ten hydrometeorological stations. Three drought indices (RDI, ASPI and SDI) were employed for the study and GIS technique was used to examine the spatial dimension of the droughts. Pearson Correlation Coefficient Analysis was used to examine the relationship among the three indices. The results of the study reveals the base year of 1998/1999 as common year of drought onset for the three drought types. The result also shows that moderate and mild droughts have the highest occurrence accounting for about 80% across the three indices. The result of the base year of 2006/2007 shows severity of meteorological, agricultural and hydrological droughts having -1.63, -1.76 and -1.5 drought intensities respectively. In conclusion, this study showed there exists strong relationship among the drought types examined and also recommends adoption of improved crop varieties such as drought-resistant crops, early maturing crops enables farmers cope with rainfall variability, particularly drought occurrences.

      Abstract: Climate variability and change has been a global problem that is affecting the environment. Therefore, this work assessed the impact of climate variability on vegetation phenology cycle in the wetland region of Niger Delta from 2010 to 2019 using remote sensing and geographical information system. The data used in this study was based on remotely sensed data. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) data MOD11A1 and MOD13A1 of 2010-2019 downloaded for three (3) years interval from the NASA website. The ArcGIS 10.1 modeler was used to put the parameter of conversion from satellite data to climate data. The mean temperature and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) was extracted using the study area administrative boundary shapefile. The result was computed in a graph. The result shows that from 2010 to 2019 there has been a serious climate variability that has impacted the vegetation phenology cycle. When NDVI was high in Cross River the temperature was low and when NDVI was low the temperature was high in Delta state. Rainfall and NDVI followed the same trend pattern as NDVI increases rainfall increases. The study shows a relationship between vegetation photosynthesis and rainfall; as rainfall increases, vegetation photosynthesis also increases. This study recommends constant monitoring of vegetation phenology to observe the impact of climate variability on the vegetation.

      Abstract: Without quantitative data, agro-meteorological planning, forecasting, and services cannot properly assist agricultural practitioners to optimally meet the ever-increasing demands for food and agricultural by-products. This study was carried out to compare several proposed estimation methods and to identify the best method for determining the rainfall variables in Southwest States of Nigeria. Rainfall variables (rainfall onset, rainfall period and rainfall cessation) were estimated from the data obtained from Nigeria Meteorological Training (NIMET) and using 3 different models of Cocheme and Franquin (CAF), Walter and Kowal and Knabe. The estimates of these 3 models were compared with the control (NIMET data) and the results revealed that mean rainfall period ranged between 213.938 and 257.875mm (for Osogbo and for Ikeja) while the variance ranged between 400.706 and 598.71 (for Osogbo and for Ado Ekiti). Generally the variance as well as the mean of the rainfall on-set was lesser than those of the rainfall period. Similarly the descriptive statistics reveal that Cocheme and Franquin’s estimates is closer to the control (The NIMET observed value) while M3 estimate is farther away. The correlation analysis of the relationship between the estimates and the control (the observed data from the NIMET) consistently returned positive/direct correlation values for all the bivariate pair and none of the bivariate correlation was negative. It was observed that M1 has the highest relationship (0.695) with the control hence could be adjudged the most similar. The general linear model (glm) analysis of rainfall on-set across the sites showed that there exists significant difference in the rainfall on-set across the sites because F (5;168 :0.05) = 43.02 obtained for rainfall on-set is statistically significant (p<0.05). Also, the glm analysis of both rainfall period and rainfall cessation across the sites indicated that the F(5; 168 :0.05)= 57.11 and 22.36 ( for rainfall period and rainfall cessation) were both significant. The results of the analysis of the consistency and efficiency of the estimator indicated that for all the estimators, V( ̂) approaches zero as n   and there exist insignificant exception to the cases where the variance tends to jump up again.

      Authors: Adaeze Ejike-Alieji; , Robert Ugochukwu Onyeneke, Ekpoh
      Pages: 77 - 85
      Abstract: Rice is an important staple food crop to most households in Nigeria. This crop is affected by climate change and variability because of its sensitivity to changing precipitation and temperature conditions. Therefore, attention must be paid to the production of rice in the face of climate vagaries if the food security objectives of the nation must be achieved. This study therefore used available primary data from climate elements such as rainfall, temperature, relative humidity and wind speed to study the effect of climate change on Production in an agricultural community in Anambra State from 1985‒2014. Climate data for 30- year period was obtained from the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NIMET), and the data for 3 consecutive years obtained usingquestionnairefrom116Rice farmers. The Coefficients of variation, seasonality index and precipitation periodicity index were used to study variability in the climate data. The Mann-Kendall’s and Sen.’s tests were used to examine the presence of significant trends in the climate variables. The results show that among all the studied climatic factors, only rainfall had considerable variability and significant trend during the study period While rainfall had a significant negative trend, relative humidity had a significant positive trend (Z = +0.38; α > 0.1). Temperature and wind speed had no significant trend.

      Authors: Enyinnaya Okoro, Virgnia U. Okwu-Delunzu, Jeremiah Ogbonna Nwankwagu
      Pages: 86 - 94
      Abstract: The paper examined the effect of temperature and relative humidity on the human comfort level in the ESUT campus. The five minutes daily minimum and maximum temperature and relative humidity were used for the study from January 2012 to December 2019 using the Automatic Weather Station in ESUT. The minimum and maximum temperature and relative humidity were summed up to obtain daily, weekly and monthly mean temperature and relative humidity. Five hundred questionnaires were administered to students to obtain their response on the condition of their lectures halls during lecture hours and to find out the comfortable temperature zone based on the weather of the ESUT campus. The result shows that the air temperature at the lecture hall range from 24°C to 31°C, relative humidity was between 54% to 62%, while the air velocity was 0.15m/s. It indicates that temperatures in the lectures are outside the comfort temperature zone specified in the National Standard according to ASHRAE; 22.2°C to 26.7°C for educational buildings. The questionnaire survey shows that 60.2% of the total students rated the thermal comfort level in the lecture halls as NOT ACCEPTABLE. The Time Series analysis established the pattern of Temperature and Relative Humidity with a positive trend line equation of yt = 27.747+0.0239*t for temperature, and yt = 58.0404+1.85490*t for relative humidity. It implies that temperature, and RH, are expected to increase with the respective trend line equation. Therefore, there is a need for sustainable environmental planning to adapt to climate variability and change.
