Parameters Identification in a Saltwater Intrusion Problem

This article is devoted to the identification, from observations or field measurements, of the hydraulic conductivity K for the saltwater intrusion problem in confined aquifer. The involved PDE model is a coupled system of nonlinear parabolic-elliptic equations completed by boundary and initial conditions. The main unknowns are the saltwater/ freshwater interface depth and the freshwater hydraulic head. The inverse problem is formulated as an optimization problem where the cost function is a least square functional measuring the discrepancy between experimental interface depths and those provided by the model. Considering the exact problem as a constraint for the optimization problem and introducing the Lagrangian associated with the cost function, we prove that the optimality system has at least one solution.
