Research Summary

My current research is in Modeling Land Cover Changes in the Niger Delta of Nigeria using Data from Earth Observation Satellite.

In recent decades, the oil industry has contributed significantly to land cover change within the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. However, the true extent and severity of the land cover change due to oil production and exploration activities remains unclear. Therefore, the aims of this project are:

  • To detect and model the magnitude, nature, direction and the likelihood of land cover changes in the Niger Delta.
  • To determine and model the relationship between oil activities and the land cover changes.
  • To model the proportional change in land cover due to variation in the amount of oil extraction
