A Computational Framework for Assessing and Optimizing the Performance of Observational Networks in 4D-Var Data Assimilation
(Virginia Tech, 2013-09-04)
A deep scientific understanding of complex physical systems, such as the atmosphere, can be achieved neither by direct measurements nor by numerical simulations alone. Data assimilation is a rigorous procedure to fuse ...
Fréchet Sensitivity Analysis and Parameter Estimation in Groundwater Flow Models
(Virginia Tech, 2013-05-09)
In this work we develop and analyze algorithms motivated by the parameter estimation problem corresponding to a multilayer aquifer/interbed groundwater flow model. The parameter estimation problem is formulated as an ...
