  • Sixty (60) sediment samples were collected from ten (10) different locations (S1-10) along Qua Iboe River /Estuary Bank in Southeastern Nigeria . Textural grain size analysis was carried out on the different sediments in order to infer the vulnerability of the different areas to erosion. The statistical grain size parameters show that the mean grain size (Mz), ranges from 1.60to 2.73with an average value of 2.06indicating medium to fine grained sand, standard deviation (sorting, σ1) has a mean… CONTINUE READING
