UCODE_2014 AND AUXILIARY COMPUTER CODES FOR UNIVERSAL SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS, CALIBRATION, AND UNCERTAINTY EVALUATION:
*UCODE_2014 completely supersedes and is backward compatible with UCODE_2005
UCODE_2014 is documented using two reports:
1) UCODE_2005 documentation and
2) a new report for UCODE_2014
Constructed using the JUPITER API:
JUPITER: Joint Universal Parameter IdenTification and Evaluation of Reliability
API: Application Programming Interface
Summary of UCODE_2014
(includes version history)
The UCODE_2014 manual is INCLUDED in the DOWNLOAD BELOW, but is offered here individually for convenient individual download:
Poeter, Eileen P., Mary C. Hill, Dan Lu, Claire R. Tiedeman, and Steffen Mehl, 2014, UCODE_2014, with new capabilities to define parameters unique to predictions, calculate weights using simulated values, estimate parameters with SVD, evaluate uncertainty with MCMC, and More: Integrated Groundwater Modeling Center Report Number: GWMI 2014-02.
The UCODE_2005 manual is INCLUDED in the DOWNLOAD BELOW, but is offered here individually for convenient individual download:
Poeter, E.P., Hill, M.C., Banta, E.R., Mehl, Steffen, and Christensen, Steen, 2005, UCODE_2005 and Six Other Computer Codes for Universal Sensitivity Analysis, Calibration, and Uncertainty Evaluation: U.S. Geological Survey Techniques and Methods 6-A11, 283p. As updated in Feb 2008.
The UCODE_2014 and UCODE_2005 documentation refers to Hill and Tiedeman (2007) in many places.
The publication is now available as:
Effective Groundwater Model Calibration: With Analysis of Data, Sensitivities, Predictions, and Uncertainty
Mary C. Hill and Claire R. Tiedeman, 2007, Wiley.
