FLOOD HAZARD MAP IN THE CITY OF BATNA (ALGERIA) BY HYDRAULIC MODELING APPROCH

By Guellouh SAMI, Dridi HADDA and Kalla MAHDI

Abstract

In the light of the global climatic changes that appear to influence the frequency\ud and the intensity of floods, and whose damages are still growing; understanding the\ud hydrological processes, their spatiotemporal setting and their extreme shape, became a\ud paramount concern to local communities in forecasting terms. The aim of this study is to map\ud the floods hazard using a hydraulic modeling method. In fact, using the operating Geographic\ud Information System (GIS), would allow us to perform a more detailed spatial analysis about\ud the extent of the flooding risk, through the approval of the hydraulic modeling programs in\ud different frequencies. Based on the results of this analysis, decision makers can implement a\ud strategy of risk management related to rivers overflowing through the city of Batna
