Assessment of Air Quality in Selected Oil Operating Areas in The Niger Delta: Effort Towards Advancing National Policy on Air Quality
Contribution to knowledge:
This study showed the concentration of air pollutants across different land use types within the study area. It also demonstrated the usefulness of agglomerative hierarchical cluster analysis and principal component analysis in air pollution source apportionment. Furthermore, the study has shown comparatively the applicability of different regression techniques in land use regression for air quality studies. From the study, land use regression can be integrated with spatial interpolation to create an interpolated surface map for air quality. Land use regression models that can be used for prediction of air quality have been produced from the study. Also produced are spatial interpolated maps for visual presentation of air quality across the study area which are useful in decision making.
