Abstract: The anomaly of the summer sea temperature is analyzed by a spatial-temporal synthetically rotated orthogonal function (REOF) at three different depths (0 m, 40 m, and 120 m) over the area 110°E~100°W and 30°S~60°N. The spatial-temporal distribution shows that the “signal” of annual anomaly is stronger in the sub-surface layer than the surface layer, and i...

Abstract:This study assessed the pattern of planetary layer lapse rate across the major climate belts of Nigeria. Six years’ data (2010-2015) for air temperature values between 1000 mbar and 850 mbar atmospheric pressure levels were acquired from Era-Interim Re-analysis data centre. The data was retrieved at 6-hourly synoptic hours: 0000H, 0600H, 1200H and 1800H at 0...

Abstract: The global warming which preoccupies humanity, is still considered to be linked to a single cause which is the emission of greenhouse gases, CO2 in particular. In this article, we try to show that, on the one hand, the greenhouse effect (the radiative imprisonment to use the scientific term) took place in conjunction with the infrared radi...

Abstract: Numbers of real-time data (E-BAM) of PM 2.5  were collected in the period from Jan 8 th  2012 to Jan 1 st  2013 at the laboratory of Tropical Ocean University (Sanya, China). The average mass concentration was 19.7 μg/m³. The highest 40.5 μg/m³ in October compared to the lowest 14.1 μg/m³ in July. From a seasonal perspective, th...
