Abstract: This paper presents an approach for developing an Expert System to aid the identification of locations and magnitudes of a finite number of groundwater pollution sources. A pattern recognition algorithm is used as a secondary knowledge base. The finite sequential recognition algorithm is accessed from within the knowledge base. The expected risk in the pattern classification decision and a heuristic confidence threshold is compared to decide on the acceptability of the source identification.
