We consider a source identification problem related to determination of contaminant source parameters in lake environments using remote sensing measurements. We carry out a numerical example case study in which we employ the statistical inversion approach for the determination of the source parameters. In the simulation study a pipeline breaks on the bottom of a lake and only low-resolution remote sensing measurements are available. We also describe how model uncertainties and especially errors that are related to model reduction are taken into account in the overall statistical model of the system. The results indicate that the estimates may be heavily misleading if the statistics of the model errors are not taken into account.
