Assessment of Seasonal Variations of Surface Water Quality and Physico-chemical Parameters of Volta Lake in Ghana

Overview

This paper examines if any variation exists within the measured different physical and chemical parameters of the surface water of Lake Volta in Ghana. It is an output of a study carried out by IFS Team AMKID, which was sponsored by International Foundation for Science - IFS (2015-2018). As we all know that studying physico-chemical parameters is very important in the conservation of biodiversity of the world. Consequently, this article is part of the outcome of the IFS sponsored project study on the analysis of the spatial and temporal variation of the physicochemical parameter of three major African wetlands namely River Niger, Lake Volta and Wami-River.

Summary

Studying physico-chemical parameters is very important in the conservation of biodiversity of the world. Any alteration in any of the components of the physical and chemical qualities of water, air or soil is a good indicator of disturbance in that environment.

It is my utmost desire that this article is informative and relevant in policy making as well as environmental monitoring of our ecosystems along with its' bio-diverse environments. This is because the way the environment is constantly being altered is a problem for everyone including politicians, managers and researchers. More than anything else, and if nothing else, I hope this article provokes us all to solution seeking and to becoming more environmental friendly.Dr Afolayan A, PhD
