Abstract

The parameters include values and directions of principal hydraulic conductivities (or transmissivities) in anisotropic media, specific storage (or storativity), interior and boundary recharge or leakage rates, coefficients of head-dependent interior and boundary sources, and boundary heads. Concludes by suggesting that certain model identification criteria developed in the time series literature, all of which are based on the maximum likelihood concept, might be useful for selecting the best groundwater model (or the best method of parameterizing a particular model) among a number of given alternatives.-from Authors
