Description: ICG 4 – Agrosphere, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany. Coupled hydrogeophysical methods infer hydrological and petrophysical parameters directly from geophysical measurements. Widespread methods do not explicitly recognize uncertainty in parameter estimates. Therefore, we apply a sequential Bayesian framework that provides updates of state, parameters and their uncertainty whenever measurements become available. We have coupled a hydrological and an ele...
