Global Warming and Air Temperature Anomalies in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria

Mangodo C., Mangodo B. O, Ogboru R. O


Abstract: The study examines the trends of temperature parameters from five synoptic stations in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. The annual mean temperature from five synoptic stations between 1951 and 2012 were collected from the archives of the Nigeria Meteorological Agency, Oshodi, Lagos. The data was analyzed using correlation coefficient and standardized anomaly. The results show that, air temperature demonstrated steady increasing trend from 1980s, it reveals that global temperature for the past 100 years is 0.740C that of the Niger Delta region under the period investigated is o.660C while the trend showed an increase of temperature anomaly of 0.30C. The current trend shows that global warming is evident in the region but is covered by the variation in some local and regional temperature. Based on the findings of the work, it is therefore; recommended that sustainable ecological measures should be practiced.
