Coupling with tools for otimizing parameters

Calibrating WaSiM can be a difficult task. Using automated parameter estimation and otimizing tools can be of great help. Experiences in coupling WaSiM with optimization tools exist for the following tools:

- PEST (Parameter ESTimation)
- SCE-UA (Shuffled Complex Evolution – University of Arizona)
- DYNIA (DYNamic Identifiability Analysis)
