The problem of determining the parameters of physical, chemical and/or biological models based on observed (noisy) data is referred to as the inverse problem. Often, progress within the geosciences and other fields is related to the robust solution of inverse problems. Faced with large, often nonlinear systems, scientists must develop models that in fitting the data must also quantitatively address model uniqueness and accuracy. Examples include constructing models of the earth, the ocean circulation and climate. During this workshop, some key issues in inverse methods facing both academic and industrial scientists will be discussed in an attempt to identify common challenges and possible approaches to solve these problems.
