Wouter Zijl, Florimond De Smedt, Mustafa El-Rawy, Okke Batelaan

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter introduces the subject matter: parameter estimation for groundwater flow models by the double constraint methodology (DCM). After a brief introduction of forward and inverse modeling, the difference between imaging and calibration is mentioned. Some relevant literature is reviewed, and the contents of the chapters of this book are presented.
