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.
