Seasonal variability in some physicochemical parameters of water of AMADI- AMA creek, Niger delta

B.B. Otene, S.I. Iorchor

Abstract


The seasonal and spatial variations of some water parameters in Amadi-Ama creek were investigated from January, 2009 to December, 2010 (24months) from 6 sampling stations. Water samples collected were analyzed following the standard limnological methods of APHA. Data were analyzed using sample statistical method of mean and subjected to ANOVA for significant difference at p≤0.05.  All the variables investigated except pH, BOD, NO3-2 and PO4-2 showed seasonal variation with higher values in the dry season than the wet season except turbidity. Spatially, all the variables except water temperature, ambient temperature and nitrate differed significantly.
