SEDIMENTATION STUDIES ON THE NIGER RIVER DELTA

Ramiro Mayor-Mora, Preben Mortensen, Jorgen Fredsoe

Abstract


An area of the Niger River Delta was studied from October 1974 to October 1975 in connection with feasibility studies and preliminary design for the development of a deep draught port in the Western portion of the Delta. The provision of a"100-kilometer, 8 or 10 m navigation channel through one of the entrances from the sea, up to new port facilities at Warri required comprehensive hydraulic, hydrographic and sedimentation surveys over such period.
