Predicting the Transport of Carbon Pressured by Variation of Bulk Density and Velocity in Onu Imo River

Eluozo S. N., Amadi C. P.


The study of carbon transport in onu - Imo River were carried out to monitor its deposition, this was possible through the rate of migration at different point of discharge. The velocity flow of the river was observed to vary at different wealth condition, but the transport rate from high to low concentration experienced homogeneous velocity of  flow thus decreased in concentration  with respect to change in distance of six metres, such decrease explained the  pressure of River velocity including reaction with other deposited substances in the Rivers, the study developed linear degradation of the substance in all the figures, the simulation observed these conditions based on the applied parameters that was observed relevant to the environments, the study  has determined the substance content in the River, the predictive values from the model simulation were subjected to validation with experiment data and both parameter developed best fits correlations. The study is imperative because the rate of carbon content that is known to be on the microelement has been examined in different station; this implied that the substance content has been defined for further examination on treatment if the River will be applied domestic use.
