Making Sense of Sensitivity Analyses
Source: Dan Hawkes
Haruko Wainwright, Stefan Finsterle, Quanlin Zhou, and Jens Birkholzer) recently compared a local sensitivity analysis method with two global sensitivity analysis methods. To illustrate these methods, they conducted a sensitivity analysis of pressure propagation induced by fluid injection and leakage in a reservoir–aquitard–aquifer system. The results show that the three methods provide consistent parameter importance rankings in this system. Their study also indicates that the three methods can provide additional information to improve system understanding.
