The interaction of NO3 and NH4 + with some soil properties was also investigated. It was necessitated by the usage of these rivers for livelihood, despite the deposition of discharges into these streams. Twenty eight (28) surface water and four soil samples were collected from various sites within the Douala metropolis. The water was analysed for pH, electrical… CONTINUE READING
