Q: source terms

bc: boudary conditions

h: head

inverse problem

Trial and error approach: manually change T, S, Q in order to reach a good fit with h

inverse problem

Ill-posed problem

Under-constrainted (more unknowns than data)

km

- Model uncertainty: structure of the medium (geology, geophysics) not known accurately (soft data)
- Heterogeneity: T varies over orders of magnitude
- Low sensitivity: data (h) may contain little information on parameters (T)
- Scale dependence: parameters measured in the field are often taken at a scale different from the mesh scale
- Time dependence: data (h) depend on time
- Different parameters (unrelated): beyond T, porosity, storativity, dispersivity
- Different data: simultaneous integration of hydraulic, geophysical, geochemical (hard data)

- Interpolation of heads
- Determination of flow tubes
- Each tube contains a known permeability value

- Determination of head everywhere by:
- Drawbacks
- Instable (small h0 errors induce large T0 errors)
- Strong unrealistic transmissivity gaps between flow tubes
- Independence between transmissivity obtained between flow tubes

- The Co-kriging equation uses the measured values of Φ =h-H, of Y, and the strcutures (covaraince, variogram, cross-variogram of Y, Φ and Y- Φ) which are known (Y) or calculated analytically from the stochastic PDE.
- The inverse problem is thus solved without having to run the direct problem and to define an objective function.
- Sometimes the covariance of Y is assumed known with an unknown coefficient which is optimized by cross-validation at points of known Y

- Principle: express permeability as a linear function of known permeability and head values

GW Flow & Transport

- Advantages
- No direct problem
- Almost analytical
- Additional knowledge on uncertainties
- Drawbacks
- Limited to low heterogeneities
- Requires lots of data

[Kitanidis,1997]

- Objective function
- Minimize head mismatch between model and data

[Carrera, 2005]

- Unstable parameters from data
- Restricts instability of the objective funtion
- Solution: regularization

- More parameters than data (under-constrained)
- Reduce parameter number drastically
- Reduce parameter space

- Acceptable number of parameters
- gradient algorithms requiring convex functions: <5-7 parameters
- Monté-Carlo algorithms: <15-20 parameters

- Solution: parameterization

- Reduce parameter number drastically

GW Flow & Transport

[Carrera, Cargese, 2005]

- Relevant parameterization depends
- on data quantity
- on geology
- on optimization algorithm

[de Marsily, Cargèse, 2005]

- Zimmerman, Marsily, Carrera et al, 1998 for stochastic simulations, 4 test problems
- 3 based on co-kriging
- Carrera-Neuman, Bayesian, zoning
- Lavenue-Marsily, pilot points
- Gomez-Hernandez, Sequantial non Gaussian
- Fractal ad-hoc method

- If test problem is a geostatistical field, and variance of Y not too large, (variance of Log10T less than 1.5 to 2) all methods perform well
- Importance of good selection of variogram
- Co-kriging methods that fit the variogram by cross-validation on both Y and h’ data perform better

- For non-stationary “complex” fields
- The linearized techniques start to break down
- Improvement is possible, e.g. through zoning
- Non-linear methods, and with a careful fitting of the variogram, perform better

- The experience and skill of the modeller makes a big difference…
