Short summary
Groundwater recharge and hydraulic conductivity are both important properties of a groundwater system. However, models using an erroneous conductivity field can be compensated by a false recharge field to construct the same type of hydraulic head observations. In this work we show that prior knowledge is very important when estimating parameter fields from ambiguous data (such as head observations). If the prior information is reasonable, the joint parameter estimation can be possible.
