Abstract:
The extreme rainfalls are meteorological events that cause much damage and many casualties. In a disrupted climate context by human activities, it is necessary to consider the probability distribution of rainfall extremes to protect the population. In this context, 43 rainfalls stations over the period 1947 to 1993 were analyzed. Frequency analysis has shown that Gumbel distribution and the Lognormal distribution fit well with a series of annual maximum daily rainfall. It was also shown a link between the probability distribution of annual maximum daily rainfall and climate patterns. Indeed, none of them do not obey a specific rainfall. The present study has also proposed new maps of daily annual maximum rainfall for return periods of 5, 10, 20 and 100 years.
