Open Access research that helps to deliver "better medicines"...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS), a major research centre in Scotland and amongst the UK's top schools of pharmacy.

Research at SIPBS includes the "New medicines", "Better medicines" and "Better use of medicines" research groups. Together their research explores multidisciplinary approaches to improve understanding of fundamental bioscience and identify novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions, investigation of the development and manufacture of drug substances and products, and harnessing Scotland's rich health informatics datasets to inform stratified medicine approaches and investigate the impact of public health interventions.

Abstract

Regional groundwater modeling is always constrained by lack of data and lack of understanding of system uncertainty. Inverse modeling of groundwater flow provides both an efficient automated parameter calibration and an additional uncertainty assessment of physically based model. The inverse groundwater modeling was used to identify model parameters and understand uncertainties associated with the regional hydrogeology and groundwater model in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The automated calibration of the model parameters, boundary condition and regional recharge was carried out using non-linear least squared optimisation. The regional groundwater flow model was constrained by uncertainty analysis during the optimal calibration. The sensitivity and confidence intervals obtained from the inverse modeling indicate that the major uncertainties were insufficient head observations and effect of the complex topography in the region. The approach is proved valuable for better understanding of the regional hydrogeology.
