This video shows how parameters can be estimated when model calibration constitutes a well-posed inverse problem. However, in groundwater modelling, well-posedness does not occur unless preceded by manual regularization. This is not recommended practice, for reasons discussed in the video. Nevertheless, the discussion is good preparation for other videos which focus on solution of ill-posed inverse problems. Of particular interest is the discussion on how to extend linear theory to calibration of nonlinear models.
