A SMART CARD SECURITY SYSTEM (A CASE STUDY OF ECO BANK)

ABSTRACTIn the up to date electronic planet, authentication of an individual is a vital assignment in numerous territories of everyday existence. Smart Cards are secure compact space gadgets utilized for a few requisitions specifically security identified ones including access to framework's database either connected or disconnected from the net. Smartcard are regularly “secure” movable units. It is an elevated amount outline system for installed informative data frameworks. Normally...

Analysis of the Causes of Road Failure in some parts of Nigeria (A Review)

ABSTRACTThis research assesses the various factors responsible for road failures in the southwestern and south-southern parts of Nigeria with the aim of reporting findings to the public domain. The research further stressed the importance and relevance of geophysics in evaluating civil engineering structures such as roads. The above goals were met by studying the results of surveys carried out by researchers in southern Nigeria. Electrical Resistivity and Electromagnetic methods have been use...

EARTHQUAKE MONITORING AND SENSING IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACTThis study reviews earthquake monitoring and sensing in Nigeria. The techniques used to monitor earthquakes include seismic, Global position system (GPS) and remote sensingmethods. For now there is no scientific method of predicting earthquakes, butseismologists depend on the anomalous animal behaviour, radon emissions,trends, creep fault, drop/rise in the water level and anomalous plant behaviourfor earthquake prediction. The study also revealed that Nigeria is not seismicallyfree fr...

Design and implementation of Mobile Banking

1.0 Background to the StudyThe internet is an integral part of our daily lives, and the proportion of the people who are expected to be able to manage their bank account anywhere, anytime is constantly growing. As such, internet mobile banking has come of age as a crucial component of any financial institution’s multichannel strategy. Internet mobile banking uses mobile phone with internet facility as the delivery channel to conduct banking activities like transferring funds, paying bills,...

REPORT ON GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS AT IKOT NAKANDA, AKPABUYO LOCAL GOVERNMENT AREA OF CROSS RIVER STATE, NIGERIA

Geophysical field school is an annual academic camping exercise that is aimed at exposing students to the practical aspects of geophysics. It is a three (3) credit hour course for third year students of applied geophysics aimed at educating students on the handling of geophysical equipment and the rudiments of data acquisition, processing and interpretation.This year’s field school was held at Ikot Nakanda and its environs, in Akpabuyo locall government area of Cros...

Forensic Geophysics: Geophysical Techniques and Applications

Forensic geophysics can be seen as that involving the use of geophysical methods in the search, locating and mapping of hidden or buried features underground or underwater. Geophysical methods have the potential to aid the search and recovery of a target because they can nondestructively and rapidly investigate large areas where a suspect, illegal burial or, in general, a forensic target or object is hidden in the subsurface.

SEISMIC CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHY: PROSPECTS IN PETROLEUM EXPLORATION

Seismic survey has long become a trusted tool for hydrocarbon exploration. This is because of the outstanding ability of seismic reflections and their over lapping relationships to image deep and shallow subsurface structures and delineate promising structural and stratigraphic traps. These subsurface features become good prospecting targets, maybe because of their depositional history or post depositional eve...

FIBRE OPTIC IN RESERVOIR SENSING

Fibre optic technologies came out of military and space research and development programme. Until recently, glass chemistry and laser interrogation hardware have not been at a level of robust where systems could survive in down-hole environments for long periods. Because of the physical properties, glass can thrive as a sensor at extremely high temperatures and efficiently high temperatures and efficiently tra...

SEISMIC TIME-LAPSE RESERVOIR MONITORING

Time lapse seismic which geophysicists often abbreviate to four dimensional (4-D) seismic is a geophysical technique which involves simply repeating a series of 3-D seismic survey over time such that the fourth dimension is in “Calendar Time”. This gives it the ability to image fluid flow in a well volume.

CHARACTERISTICS OF POLLUTED SANDS A CASE STUDY IN NIGER DELTA (REVIEW)

ABSTRACTThis study is aimed at using the characteristics of polluted soil to delineate different soillayers and deduce ways of providing remediation to the problems generated as aresult of soil pollution using Electrical Resistivity Method.An inversion of the measured apparent resistivity values using a computer program was carriedout to determine the true subsurface resistivity. This method was used toestimate the lateral and vertical extend to which a particular soil has beencontaminated by...
