Description
If multiple observation types (e.g., pressure, flow rate, prior information, etc.) are used to
estimate model parameters, the relative weights assigned to each type is given by the ratio
where tau_{i} are scalars such that C_{i} = tau_{i} * V_{i} . Here, C is the covariance matrix of all observations of type i (a submatrix of covariance matrix C_{ii}), and V_{i} is a positive symmetric matrix. By default, tau is fixed at 1. This command allows lambda to be updated in an iterative process, where tau is recalculated every multiple of niter iterations and is given by:
If a negative number is provided for niter, prior information is excluded from the process.
Recall that tau_{i} refers to all data of a certain observation type (i.e., not to individual data sets).
The process assigns weights such that the relative contribution of each observation type to the
objective function tends to 1/omega, where omega is the number of observation types used in the
inversion. It should also be realized that the Fisher model test becomes meaningless if lambda is
updated during the inversion because the test will always be fulfilled by definition.
While this option provides flexibility in reassigning relative weights to data of different types,
it is instead suggested to carefully select the standard deviations of the observations and prior
parameter estimates (see command
