Description
This command limits the number of TOUGH2 simulations performed during an inversion.
A rough estimate of the total number of TOUGH2 simulations during an inversion can be made
given the number of iterations requested (see command >>> ITERATION) and the type of
finite difference quotients calculated (see commands >>> FORWARD and >>> CENTERED).
However, there is an unknown number of unsuccessful steps that cannot be accounted for.
The maximum number of TOUGH2 simulations may also be limited in order to stop and
examine a specific simulation that leads to convergence problems (see command >>> INCOMPLETE).
If performing Monte Carlo simulations (see command >>> MONTE CARLO), mtough2 is
the number of parameter sets generated and thus the number of realizations of the calculated system output.
