A new DFG-funded collaborative project has been funded: "COMPUtational Framework for Modern
Calibration and Validation of Mathematical Models of Subsurface Flows - COMPU-FLOW". COMPU-FLOW is
a collaboration between LS3 and Prof. Harrie-Jan Hendricks Franssen at the FZ Jülich, Germany.
The project seeks to initiate a community-wide effort of benchmarking and intercomparison of geostatistical inversion methods. It will provide benchmarking scenarios along with reference solutions, and make these publicly available on a long-term basis. The reference solutions will be computed with newly developed inversion algorithms, running on the high-performance computing machinery at FZ Jülich. More than ten internationally well-known research groups have agreed to join the effort of intercomparison.
Our Post-Doc Teng Xu is a member of this project.
