 en Spread of Composite Pollutants in Shallow Waters of the Niger Delta
Abbey, T.M.; Anyalebechi, O. & Akonye, L.A.

Abstract

Experimental survey has been advanced on the effects of composite pollutants spread in shallow waters of the Niger Delta, using the Trans-Amadi creek as a case study. The analysis, which involves the identification of the nature of pollutants by the absorption photo spectrometer method and the Aitken Lagrangian interpolation model, shows that the contaminated water body, whose contaminants resulted from both human and industrial wastes consist of K, Mg, Mn, Fe, Zn and SO42- pollutants. The amount per litre of these elements in the sampled water were found to be higher than the United Nation recommended standards. The analysis shows that the spread follow a trend of the form: is the initial quantity deposited at the point y = 0. The overall analysis shows that K, Mg, Mn and SO42- were most predominant in the spread.
