  • A study on the characterization of sediment quality was conducted along a stretch of the Benin River, Niger Delta, Nigeria, between June and December, 2011 to evaluate the impact of anthropogenic activities. Five stations were selected from Ajimele to Koko for the investigation. Samples were analysed using standard methods. The results showed that the sediment was slightly acidic across the study stations. There was no significant difference (P> 0.05) in the mean concentrations of organic… CONTINUE READING
