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

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

The analysis of some phytochemicals and minerals were performed using aqueous stem
bark extract of Albizia lebbeck obtained from Gano town of Wudil Local Government
Area, Kano-Nigeria. The research work was undertaken to identify and quantify
phytochemicals such as tannins, flavonoids, saponins, phenols, alkaloids; and minerals
such as magnesium, iron, calcium, zinc and potassium found in the aqueous stem bark
extract of the plant. The result of the phytochemical screening indicated that the stem

Studies on post-harvest fungi causing deterioration in cabbage (Brassica oleracea)
sampled from farmers at Kwakwachi irrigation area in Kano State was carried out
between September and December, 2014. The samples were surface sterilized using 3%
sodium hypochlorite solution and homogenates were cultured on potato Dextrose Agar
and incubated at 25.7 ±2oc for three days. Pure cultures of the resulting fungal colonies
were obtained from the subcultures of the primary plates. These were identified
