21 October 2013
The water level has reached its peak in Mopti this year on 14 October (621 cm) and remained at that level until 19 October, declining by 1 cm on 20 and 21 October and by 2 cm on 22 and 23 October.
The water is still increasing in the northern half of the Inner Niger Delta Akka and will reach its peak in the second half of November.
This is the last OPIDIN-Bulletin of 2013. We will work on a further improvement of OPIDIN. One of the ideas to integrate the recent rainfall in the Upper Bani and Upper Niger into the model to achieve a more accurate prediction. Contact us if you have suggestions and visit the site again from late June 2014 onwards to see the prediction of the flood in 2014.
