Abstract

By using the regional case of the Oubangui River drainage area in Central Africa, the aim of this study is to focus on the intensity and frequency of flood hazards over the past 90 years at the site of Bangui. It will be discussed if the statistical analysis of the Oubangui discharges from 1911 up to the present will confirm the hypothesis of a recently ongoing aridification trend evidenced by fluvial systems in northern Central Africa
