LEVERAGING APPLIED GEOPHYSICS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION: A SOUTH WEST NIGERIAN PERSPECTIVE ON DATA ANALYSIS AND POLICY IMPLEMENTATION
This research aimed to delve into the potential of applied geophysics in environmental conservation, with a specific focus on the South West Nigerian context, and its implications for data analysis and policy implementation. Through a comprehensive review of peer-reviewed articles, case studies, and primary research, the study explored various geophysical techniques and their applications in environmental conservation efforts. The research highlighted the efficacy of these techniques in the South West Nigerian region, emphasizing their significance in shaping environmental policies. Despite the evident potential, challenges and limitations associated with these techniques were also identified. The study further provided suggestions for improved environmental conservation strategies and highlighted potential areas for continued research in the realm of applied geophysics. In conclusion, while applied geophysics offers promising tools for environmental conservation, a holistic approach, integrating both scientific and policy-driven strategies, is essential for sustainable conservation efforts in South West Nigeria. Recommendations include fostering collaborations between geoscientists, policymakers, and local communities, and investing in further research to address identified gaps.
