Evaluation of a Bias Aware Ensemble Kalman Filter Using a Scaled Aquifer Transport Experiment
In this study, a bias-aware Ensemble Kalman Filter (EnKF) is applied to a scaled aquifer transport experiment (1-cm of the model equals 1-m at field scale and 1-day of model transport...

Enhancing the Solution of Large Monitoring Network Design Problems Using a New Epsilon-Dominance Hierarchical Bayesian Optimization Algorithm
Designing long-term monitoring (LTM) networks for contaminated groundwater is a challenging problem that has long been recognized to suffer from the curse of dimensionality. LTM design...

Probabilistic Analysis of Long-Term Aquifer Recharge
Long-term time series of aquifer recharge and other aquifer fluxes (aquifer discharge, groundwater extraction) are essential to monitor and understand aquifer processes. This paper presents...
