Inverse Problems and Transforming Mechanisms

  • Vikenti Gorokhovski
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences book series (BRIEFSEARTH)


As mentioned in  Chap. 4, the term “inverse problem” is not a synonym for the terms “model identification,” “model calibration,” “historical matching,” or “site-specific validation.” These relate to evaluating the effective characteristics for a given simulation model, which is usually an optimization problem. The goal of the inverse problem is to estimate the actual properties of geological objects using available observations on natural geological phenomena or on responses on manmade impacts.
