Abstract: An optimal parameter estimation model is developed to identify the locations of wells, to determine pumping magnitude, and to calculate transmissivity coefficients in a confined aquifer system from a set of observed data of piezometric head. The Boundary Integral Equation Method (BIEM) is adopted to transform the governing equation of the aquifer system, and optimization techniques are employed to find solutions. In this paper, the groundwater in Taipei basin is presented as a case study.
