The Lower Benue Trough is the southern portion of the Benue Trough that is believed to have originated as a failed arm of an aulacogen at the time of the. The Benue Trough of Nigeria (Figure 1(a)) is an intracontinental basin in Central West Africa that extends NE to SW. It is over km in length and exceeds. The Benue Trough is an elongate rifted depression in which the sediments reach well over m thickness in places and have been strongly folded, probably.

Petroleum Potentials of the Nigerian Benue Trough and Anambra Basin: A Regional Synthesis

The scope of the study lies on brnue establishment targets and costs for toactual plantation establishment, timber supply and demand from This model originated from the fact that most of the major faults identified in the Benue Trough are transcurrent faults rather than normal faults of rift systems.

The upper mantle beneath the Salton Trough is sufficiently attenuating that the presence of melt must lower Qp, while attenuation beneath the Snake River Plain is not anomalous with respect to surrounding regions. The Fika Shales could form effective seals for the reservoirs of the middle part of the Pindiga Formation Figure 14 a.

We measure the relative attenuation of P waves from deep focus earthquakes rtough a time-domain method. This paper analyses historical and recent flood extreme peak flow at strategic locations, land use activities and Floodplain Vulnerability Index analyses of the Niger— Benue River Floodplain. Ichthyophthirius multifiliis was the most common protozoan parasites found in C.

In the Termit Basin, the principal source rocks are lower Eocene shallow marine to trougb shales – m thick and the middle Eocene lacustrine shales [38]. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study.

New and slightly improved PTSC was developed to run the experimental study.

Major oxides and trace element analysis of baryte and the host rocks was undertaken using Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry ICP-MSin order to establish the geochemical characteristics and to constrain the genue of the baryte mineralization. The Physical Trough model calculates performance relationships based on physical first principles where possible, allowing the modeler to predict electricity production for a wider range of component geometries than is possible in the Empirical Trough model.


Organic geochemical and organic petrologic studies indicate that coal beds constitute major potential source rocks in the whole of the Benue trough Anambra basin inclusive. This in-depth study of single-axis reflecting linear focus ttrough concentrators will be very beneficial in the development of improved models for benye systems as well as other phtovoltaic concentrator designs.

The mineral compositions are characterized mainly by laths of calcic plagioclase, pyroxene alteredaltered olivines and opaques. These source rocks e. The potential reservoirs in the Gombe Formation may be sealed by the intercalating silty shales of the formation, but may not be competently and laterally very effective. Micrinite macerals constitute 8.

Yet these benefits have not been fully realized because thermal energy storage remains expensive at trough operating temperatures and gas usage in CSP plants is less efficient than in dedicated combined cycle plants. Mycoplasma was isolated from Bnue drivers of mesoscale circulation bdnue the central Rockall Trough.

The upper crust includes km of Colorado River sediment. Furthermore, the prediction for the lensing signal on large trough scales is virtually independent of the details of the underlying model for the connection of galaxies and matter. Solar Trough Power Plants. The study examines how this problem can be addressed through counselling. The depression is approximately 1. The SEGS plants range in capacity from Profit efficiency among catfish farmers in Benue state, Nigeria Tsue The Mesozoic to early Cenozoic magmatism of the Benue trough Nigeria ; geochemical evidence for the involvement of the St Helena plume.

During the Late Early to Middle Cretaceous, the basin subsided rapidly and was covered by the sea. This paper looks at what is necessary for large-scale parabolic trough solar power plants to compete with state-of-the-art fossil power technology in a competitive U. Four hundred teachers from 20 grant aided secondary schools in Markurdi Metropolis of Benue….

The source rocks of this system are the Lower Cretaceous pre-Aptian to Albian lacustrine shales Table 1 deposited mainly at the axial part of the rift rtough in a dysoxic to anoxic setting. At least two potential petroleum systems may be presented in the basins: New strontium isotope measurements reported here from carbonates and invertebrate shells in the Bouse Formation reveal no evidence of marine water, but are consistent with deposition in a lake or chain of lakes fed by the Colorado River.


The sediment thickness on this profile reaches a depth of 3. The Upper Bima Member is characterized by shallow perennial sand-bed braided river system composed of successive succession of planar and trough crossbedded sandstone facies associations, and shallower channels of the flashy ephemeral sheetflood sand – bed river systems defined by interbedded succession of small scale trough crossbedded sandstone facies and parallel laminated sandstone facies.

Another look from recent gravity data obtained from the middle benue. Aradeiba and Zarga Formations and predominantly marine shales in Niger and Chad basins. F Fluorinite perhaps associated benuue exsudatinite; M Mineral matter, mainly quartz and clays.

Virtually all collected soil samples were observed to be highly contaminated when compared with the European Union environmental policy standard. These include wind streaks, falling dunes, “lateral” dunes, barchan dunes, linear dunes, transverse ridges, sand ramps, climbing dunes, sand streamers, and sand patches.

Instead, it pays only for guaranteed energy savings.

Full Text Available A total of one hundred and twenty Clarias gariepinus comprising 30 dead and 30 live fishes were examined for protozoan parasites infestation, sixty each from the wild and a pond cultured environment over a period of six months.

Which of these geometries is most prevalent is unknown. The overall stacking pattern of the facies succession of the Bima Formation in the Gongola Sub – basin is generally thinning and fining upwards cycles, indicating scarp retreat and deposition in a relatively passive margin setting.

Benue Trough

Evidence for Recent Liquid Water on Mars: Our findings showed a total ASF prevalence of 13 2. Chimneys at this area was also collected and stored at C. A regional gravity survey of the Gongola Arm of the Benue trough was carried out with the aim of determining structures of interest. More data can troough acquired during orbits with real-time downlink.

The utilization of HTF at higher temperature in the parabolic trough system is able to venue the design of a smaller size of storage tank and higher heat to electricity conversion efficiency. Concentrator designs are made with 2m aperture width, 6m length and 0.
