An inverse convection-radiation problem for developing laminar natural flow in an annular region is investigated. The straight inversion process is found to be susceptible to input data contaminated with simulated random experimental errors. In order to overcome the ill-posed behavior associated with inverse problems, a whole domain regularization scheme tailored for elliptic system of equations is employed in the inversion routine. The methodology is found to be effective in curbing the ill-posed symptoms inherent in inverse problems.
