The study of atmospheric emissivity is an important aspect of atmospheric science and climate research. Emissivity refers to the ability of a surface or material to emit radiation. In the context of the atmosphere, emissivity is crucial in understanding how gases and particles in the atmosphere interact with and emit radiation. In this study, we shall be determining the atmospheric emissivity of Warri, Delta state Nigeria, using ten years (minimum and maximum) temperature of Warri. Due to the high economic and industrial activities, there seem to be a high-level environmental pollution in Warri causing the atmospheric emissivity of the city to be unstable. However in Warri during the peak rainy season high rate of effective atmospheric emissivity is experienced and during the harmattan period low rate of effective atmospheric emissivity due to lapse rate Temperature Inversion that is experienced.
