In this paper we describe a Bayesian approach for obtaining compositional estimates that combines expert knowledge with information obtained from measurements. We define a prior model for the compositional volume fractions and observation models for each of the measurement tools. Both prior and observation models are based on domain expertise. These models are combined in a joint probability model. To deal with the nonlinearities in the model, Bayesian inference is implemented by using the hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm.
