The nature of inverse problems in convective environments is investigated. The ill-posed quality inherent in inverse problems is verified for free convection laminar flow in a vertical channel. A sequential function specification algorithm is adapted for the semiparabolic system of equations that governs the flow and heat transfer in the channel. The procedure works very well in alleviating the ill-posed symptoms of inverse problems. The performance of a simple smoothing routine is also tested for the prescribed conditions.
