AN ASSESSMENT OF THE EFFECT OF URBANISATION ON URBAN ZARIA

Abstract: 

It is in cities that the negative impact of warming climate will be felt most strongly. The comfort and wellbeing of urban population will become increasingly compromised under future scenarios for climate change and urbanization. Twenty years data for Temperature, Relative humidity, rainfall and wind speed were used to study the degree of climate change in Zaria. The study attempts to evaluate the impact of urbanization of Zaria on its climate. Regression analysis was used to determine the direction and strength of the climate. From the study, it was observed that as population (which is referred to as the growth variable in the study) increases, temperature, relative humidity wind speed and rainfall decreases. The magnitude of these variations was strong and hence supported theories in urban climates. Consequently, a number of solutions towards tackling the problems have been prescribed

This study assessed the local climate zones (LCZ) in Kaduna metropolis. It involved the
categorization of the land use land cover using local climate zone scheme, as well as the
determination of the canyon geometry of the study sites within the study area. 19 study
sites were selected within and outside the metropolis Deploying meteorological stations
in rural and urban areas as well as across urban areas reveal that in most cases,
significant variability exists in the microclimates observed. And that this variability

ASSESEMENT OF WERNER DECONVOLUTION METHOD IN THE ANALYSIS OF REGIONAL FAULT SYSTEM: A CASE STUDY OF THE KALANGAI FAULT SYSTEM NORTHWESTERN NIGERIA

Werner deconvolution analysis of four ground and six aero magnetic profiles across the
Kalangai fault within the Kushaka schist belt northwestern Nigeria was carried out in
order to assess the usefulness of the method in analyzing profile magnetic data. The
length of the ground profiles varies from 4 Km to 8 Km, while that of the aeromagnetic
profiles from 40 Km to 80 Km. All the profiles were laid perpendicular to the strike
direction of the fault. The ground magnetic profile data were obtained using a Scintrex
