Some Physical and Chemical Characteristics in Okpoka Creek, Niger Delta, Nigeria

  title={Some Physical and Chemical Characteristics in Okpoka Creek, Niger Delta, Nigeria},
  author={Jasper Freeborn Nestor Abowei and Awoteinm Dateme Isaiah George},
Some physical and chemical characteristics in okpoka creek was studied for one year. There was a long wet season stretching from April to October in and a dry season extending from November to March. The total monthly rainfall ranged from 1.8mm to 399.6mm. The highest total rainfall (399.6mm) was recorded in July while the lowest rainfall (1.8mm) was observed in January. The atmospheric temperature fluctuated from 28.5°C in July to 33°C in March. The monthly water temperature values ranged…
