Short summary
A dramatic increase in the frequency and intensity of floods due to the Niger River has been observed in the last decade in Niamey. This paper analyses how changes in rainfall may explain this flood intensification, based on a 30 year long series of satellite rainfall and a hydrological model. We show that the salient changes in the mean decadal hydrograph between 1983 and 2013 are well mimicked by the simulations. This implyes that rainfall is the first driver to the observed changes.
