Abstract

To proposing measures to mitigate the impacts related to noise pollution and air quality resulting from work to protect the sandy coast of Grand-Lahou, research work was undertaken to assess the spatial impact of these pollution. To do this, several data from Grand-Lahou coastal sandy were used, such as the USGS Earth Explorer site (https://earthexplorer.usgs.gov/) and Earthdata, which are Landsat 8 OLI TIRS, Landsat 7 ETM and ASTER DEM images. As for the acquisition of wind speed data, they were acquired on the NOAA website https://fr.weatherspark.com. The digital processing of the data and the cartographic layout were carried out using the ARCGIS 10 software. “Buffer” application of ArcGis software will be used to map the spatial extent of noise pollution from the work zone. The spatial influence of gaseous emissions was defined by the wind rose and by the IDW spatial interpolation and ECN kriging methods. The results showed that in the opening zone of the future pass, noise pollution is between 73 and 79 dB(A) for an area of 82.08 m2 and 67 dB(A) for an area of 59.88 m2. Then that in the closure zone of the existing pass, buildings of 5248.80 m2 will suffer noise pollution of between 73 and 79 dB(A) and other residential areas will suffer noise pollution of 69 to 73 dB(A) over a surface area of 5996.96 m2. As for greenhouse gases, ECN quantities are low and vary between 10.64 and 193.19 in the opening zone of the new pass while in the closure quantities zone of the current pass, the village Ancien Lahou -Kpanda could be affected by gas and smoke discharges whose ECN values are estimated at more than 140, as for the carbon footprint evaluated at 2,796.27 tCO2eq.
