Abstract

Prior information on the parameters of a groundwater flow model can be used to improve parameter estimates obtained from nonlinear regression solution of a modeling problem. Two scales of prior information can be available: 1) prior information having known reliability (that is, bias and random error structure), and 2) prior information consisting of best available estimates of unknown reliability. It is shown that if both scales of prior information are available, then a combined regression analysis may be made. -from Author
