Project: Mathematical modelling & computer simulation of pollutants transfer mechanism in the drainage basin of river Sourou
Project coordinator: Professor Blaise Some
Conduct “Mathematical modelling & computer simulation of pollutants transfer mechanism in the drainage basin of river Sourou” research project. In particular (1) in cooperation with experts and other institutions, collect and analyse data (measures, observation), identification of the shortages in existing models, proposal to address them; (2) mathematical analysis of data, establishment of new models and analysis of the latter; numerical equation solving and numerical modelling, comparison with observation data.
Design mathematics forecasting models and make them available to institutions, researchers, for (1) understanding and control of aquifer pollution mechanisms in the drainage basin of river Sourou and other similar drainage basins in Burkina Faso, and (2) the fight against aquifer contamination (prevention, cleanup systems)
Make available to decision makers a tool for surveillance and control of drainage basin aquifers pollution.
Use of numerical results obtained to conceive software that will be usable in Burkina Faso and elsewhere to act in real time and precisely against pollution cases in drainage basins.
