Joint inversion becomes increasingly important with the availability of various types of measurements related to the same quantity. Questions arising in this context are how to combine the different data sets in the first place and, secondly, how to choose the multiple parameters that naturally occur in such a combination. This chapter discusses some recently proposed techniques addressing these issues. Additionally, we distinguish the two cases when all underlying problems are ill posed (e.g., satellite data only) and when some of them are not ill posed (e.g., satellite data is complemented by data at the Earth surface). Theoretical discussions of the topics above are presented as well as numerical experiments with different settings of simulated data.
