Modeling the Propagation of Flood Waves at the Mouth of the Comoé River in Grand-Bassam (South East of Côte d’Ivoire)
International Journal of Environment and Climate Change,
This study was carried out in order to determine the areas at risk of flooding during high water periods at the mouth of the Comoé River in Grand-Bassam. The database is essentially made up of hydro-climatic data, satellite images and topographic data. According to the various criteria, the Weibull law was selected to estimate the maximum frequency flows. According to this law, the flows at the return periods of 2, 10, 50 and 100 years are respectively 634, 733, 781 and 797 m3 / s. The modeling results showed that the areas exposed to the risk of flooding are located near the Ouladine lagoon and the Ebrié lagoon at the mouth of the Comoé river. The extent of the floodplains varies with flooded areas of the order of 85.63 km²; 89.42 km²; 101.67 km²; 107.10 km² for the return periods of 2; 10; 50 and 100 years old.
