Atmospheric Research and Information Analysis Laboratory (ARIAL)

The Atmospheric Research and Information Analysis Laboratory (ARIAL), is a research facility with the aim of developing and applying relevant atomic, nuclear, other experimental, computational and modeling techniques, to various scales of atmospheric research, as may be relevant to Meteorology, Climatology and emerging global atmospheric change issues.

ARIAL was established to meet some of the challenges in the implementation of the Canada-Nigeria Climate Change Capacity Development (CN-CCCD) Project, under the auspices of the Global Change Strategies International (GCSI) Inc., Ottawa, Canada and the Nigerian Environmental Study/Action Team (NEST), Ibadan, Nigeria.

These include greenhouse gas emissions inventory, mitigation options assessment, regional climate modeling and development of climate scenarios for Nigeria for the period 2000 – 2100 to support climate change vulnerability and adaptation studies. Others include the development and implementation of the framework for carbon trade under the clean development mechanism (CDM) and an electronic data archival and retrieval systems to support all climate change research and policy issues in Nigeria.
