Palynological Baseline data acquisition for superficial sediments were carried out within the Middle and Lower Benue Trough in the area bounded by longitudes 6.49E and 8.33E and latitudes 4.47N and 8.35N. The study area traverse from Lafia Nasarawa State to Emohua town Rivers State. Samples collected comprises sandstone, siltstone and shale across a geographic spread of the study area. The palynologic analysis yielded Nympheapollis clarus, Fenestrites spinosus, Cyperaceapollis sp and…
