This paper studied the reliability characteristics of a two-dissimilar unit cold standby
system with three modes (normal, partial failure and total failure) by using kolmogorov
forward equation method, in which explicit expressions of the mean time to system
failure (MTSF ), steady state availability ( ) T A ¥ , the busy period ( ) P B ¥ and profit
function ( ) F P ¥ are derived. The failure rate and repair time are assumed to have
exponential distribution. It was found that (MTSF ), ( ) T A ¥ and ( ) F P ¥ decreases with

This review highlights the manifestation of climate change in the Hadejia-Nguru
wetlands. Warming of the earth surface is definitely taking place. And that most of the
increase in global temperature is caused by greenhouse gases emitted as a result of
human activities. The Hadejia-Nguru wetland ecosystem comprises permanent lakes and
seasonally flooded pools connected by a network of channels. The wetland is an
important site for biodiversity. The minimum essential characteristics of a wetland are
