A calibrated model uses selected values of hydrogeologic parameters, sources and sinks and boundary conditions to match historical field conditions.
History matching using the calibrated model to reproduce historic field conditions. The process of model verification may result in further calibration refinement of the model. After the model has successfully reproduced measured changes in field conditions, it is ready for predictive simulations.
Why is model verification important?
Model verification is necessary to ensure the model can be used to accurately run predictive scenarios.
