11 11 Motivation Ground Water (Hydrologic) Science: Currently, there is no single method that could estimate R/D rates and patterns for all practical applications. Therefore, cross analyzing results from various estimation methods and related field information is likely to be superior than using only a single estimation method. Computer Science : It is currently impossible (a) to replace an expert with a lot of tacit domain knowledge by computer algorithms or (b) to learn by an expert new I/O relationships from a plethora of possible variables and an extremely large space of processing methods and their parameters Thus, assisting experts to discover, evaluate and validate new relationships in an iterative way will likely enable (a) better understanding of the underlying phenomena, and (b) more automated and cost-efficient predictions

13 13 Our Approach Data-Driven Analyses to Test Alternative Models, and to Search the Space of Processing Operations and Their Parameters Interpolation methods Mathematical models Image processing algorithms Machine learning algorithms Scalability of algorithms with large size data Computer-Assisted Comparisons and Evaluations of Multiple Models and Sub-Optimal Solutions Model/Solution Representation Closed Loop (Iterative) Workflows Human Computer Interfaces Overall Approach: An Exploration Framework for a Class of Alternative Models/Hypotheses and Optimal Solutions

14 14 SP2Learn Problem Formulation Given a set of geo-spatially sparse field measurements and auxiliary variables, derive accurate, spatially dense, R/D rate map by (a) using physics-based model (b) incorporating boundary conditions and (c) exploring auxiliary variables representing prior knowledge about R/D patterns but missing in the physics-based model

15 15 Challenges (1) How to Recognize Meaningful Pattern of Predicted Map? (2) How to Quantify the Goodness of the Pattern? Approach: (1a) Recognize patterns by utilizing multiple image enhancement and segmentation techniques applied to R/D rate predictions (1b) Introduce relationship between R/D pattern and auxiliary (a priori reference) information (2a) Define goodness w.r.t. reference information using experts selection of meaningful relationships (2b) Define goodness w.r.t. reference information using complexity of machine learning
