Short summary
Model parameters are usually optimized based on measurements. These measurements are often time-consuming or costly. The conditions under which theses measurements are carried out, also called experimental designs, can be optimized so that with minimum effort and cost a maximum accuracy can be achieved. For this, we present different approaches together with their implementation in an MATLAB toolbox. We demonstrate their application to different models for sedimentation in salt marshes.
