Sensitivity analysis requires the calculation of the sensitivity of a performance measure of model output to a model input. This repository contains two jupyter notebooks demonstrating the calculation of forward (using Green's functions) and adjoint sensitivities. Both examples are presented in

Neupauer, R.M., C. Turnadge, and J. Okkonen, Forward and adjoint modeling of sensitivities to periodic forcings in groundwater flow and transport, Mathematical Geosciences,, 2023

Case 1 is a periodic thermal loading in a one-dimensional, homogeneous aquifer. Case 2 is stream depletion in a two-dimensional homogeneous aquifer.
