Bernard Minoungou, Hydrological Modelling Assistant

Bernard Minoungou worked for two years at the General Directorate of Water Resources of Burkina Faso. His role was to follow the hydrometric network, to produce information on water resources. He is currently working for the AGRHYMET Regional Centre and his role is to carry out hydrological modelling to define and quantify the dominant hydrological processes in the main river basins of West Africa, with a view to implement forecasting and producing information on water. In view of this role, part of his work is to improve climate products by combining satellite data with ground observation stations. He uses hydrological rainfall-runoff models such as SWAT and HYPE. At the operational level, we force hydrological models with climate data.
