Description
This command allows one TOUGH2 simulation to be performed in order to solve the forward problem. It is advantageous to perform a single TOUGH2 simulation before invoking more expensive inversions. The result from the forward run can be used to check TOUGH2 and iTOUGH2 input. Furthermore, a plotfile is generated with the results from the simulation with the initial parameter set which can be compared to the observed data. The CPU time requirement for an inversion can also be estimated from a single TOUGH2 simulation. (Note that there is another command >>> FORWARD in block >> JACOBIAN.)

>>> before performing : 5 iTOUGH2 ITERATIONS
