The sediment characteristics in Sombreiro River of the Niger Delta region of Nigeria was studied for a period of two years (January, 2007 - December, 2009) using an Eckman grab of 10 cm diameter and 12 cm long. The sand contents of the sediment were high across the stations. The percentage sand content ranged from 81.96 to 94.52%. Station 4 (Odiemudie) had the highest value (94.52%) while station 1 (Degema) had the lowest value (81.96%). The percentage silt content ranged from 1.53 to 7.72… Expand
