Assessing Environmental Flow Requirements for the Marromeu Complex of the Zambezi Delta: Application of the Drift Model (Downstream Response to Imposed Flow Transformations)




The Zambezi Delta is a broad, flat alluvial plain along the coast of central Mozambique. The delta is triangular in shape, covering an area of approximately 1.2 million hectares that stretches 120 km from its inland apex (near the confluence of the Zambezi and Shire Rivers) to the main Zambezi River mouth and 200 km along the Indian Ocean coastline from the Cuacua River outlet near Quelimane south to the Zuni River outlet. The large port city of Beira is located about 200 km to the south. The Delta is bordered to the north by the Morrumbala escarpment that serves as a divide between the Zambezi and Shire River catchments, and to the west by the Cheringoma escarpment that separates the Zambezi and Pungue River catchments.
