Application of Kalman Filtering to Groundwater Flow in Finite Heterogeneous Aquifersby Mohamed M. Hantush, Univ of California, Davis, United States,

Abstract: A stochastically based methodology using Kalman filtering is presented for the optimal estimation of hydraulic properties in finite heterogeneous aquifers. This is achieved by applying the Galerkin finite-element method integrated with an eigenvalue technique within the framework of the small perturbation approach. The methodology is tested by applying the Kalman filter to a hypothetical aquifer.
