PEST (Parameter Estimation for any Model) performs nonlinear parameter estimation for any model.

  • requires no changes or code alterations to a model; the model's source code is not required; the model need not be recompiled.
  • is a parameter estimation shell; it communicates with a model through the model's own input and output files.
  • can estimate parameters for complex models consisting of multiple executable programs.
  • number of adjustable parameters and observations limited only by available memory.
  • can be used by both programming and non-programming modellers to undertake sophisticated calibration or data interpretation tasks.
  • has been used successfully for model calibration and data interpretation in a wide range of scientific fields.
