  author={Shimin Zou and A. Parr},
The state-space estimation technique presented herein provides a method for obtaining optimal estimates of concentrations for two-dimensional plumes in ground water. The concentration of a plume was defined as the state variable. The techniques uses the Kalman filter and involves combining two independent estimates of plume concentrations. One estimate is called the process modeling data and the other is called the measurement data. The process modeling data is obtained from a numerical model… CONTINUE READING
