The annual discharge fluctuations of the basin rivers regime are mainly determined by the climatic conditions (rainfall, evaporation) and the proper characteristics of the drainage basin (hydrogeology, topography).
For all the rivers from the Oubangui basin, the rainfall input range between 6 to 56% for Na; 1 to 27% for Ca; 0.4 to 6.1% for Mg and 2.1 to 11% for Sr.
During this period, the Uele river is the main tributary of the Oubangui river (Boulvert, 1987; Dugas and Thiebaux, 1989).

 Transaqua: An Idea For The Sahel
The basins of these rivers receive a mean rainfall generally in excess of 1,500mm a year, and their runoff coefficients appear to be between 20 and 30%.
The immediate effect of the canal will therefore be to control the floods and to convey the waters of the rivers intercepted in the south to the watercourses intercepted in the more northerly stretch, either by means of direct flow into the rivers or by creating special storage and balancing basins.
In fact, the catchments of these rivers are subject to a rainfall regime--and therefore to hydrological behavior--of a more differentiated nature (spring minimum and autumn maximum), and therefore the canal and the linked reservoirs can help to regulate their flows on an all-year basis, diminishing the flood discharges.
