    The study presented in this manuscript aimed to relate the sedimentary strata imaged by the ground penetrating radar (GPR) method through numerical modeling with the mapping of sedimentary strata acquired through geotechnical surveys. The study aimed to expose how obtaining subsoil information through noninvasive/destructive electromagnetic waves is beneficial, as they are reliable and less costly... More

    This research investigates and reports on the petrology and geochemical characteristics of crystalline basement rocks in Ora-Ekiti, Southwestern Nigeria. Exhaustive geological investigation reveals migmatite, banded gneiss, granite gneiss and biotite gneiss underlie the area. In reducing order of abundance, petrographic examination reveals that migmatite contains quartz, muscovite and opaque minerals. Banded geniuses contain quartz, biotite,... More

    In this study, the Radio Direction Finding method is proposed for the detection of electromagnetic signals, in the VLF band, to try to anticipate the occurrence of potentially destructive geophysical events. The experimentation concerns the interception of electromagnetic anomalies in Sierra Leone, in the five-day time window, associated with seismic events that could potentially generate... More

    The most common supply of freshwater for drinking, irrigation, and other domestic uses is groundwater; however, because of increased radon concentrations brought on by mining activities, its quality is still a severe concern. Using a liquid scintillation detector, this study investigated the radon content, its related toxicity, and its risk to human health in the... More

  • Application of 2-D and 3-D Geo-electrical Resistivity Tomography and Geotechnical soil Evaluation for Engineering site Investigation: A Case Study of Okerenkoko Primary School, Warri-Southwest, Delta State, Nigeria

    In the design of building structures, joint efforts must be decided to resolve the depth to competent layers across the intended site, and periodic subsidence monitoring and deformation assessment of all buildings, specifically high-rise buildings, should be a regular practice, to safeguard the durability of civil engineering structures, to avert the disastrous consequences of...
