We present an algorithm for parameter identification in combustion problems modeled by partial differential equations. The method includes local mesh refinement controlled by a posteriori error estimation with respect to the error in the parameters. The algorithm is applied to two types of combustion problems. The first one deals with the identification of Arrhenius parameters, while in the second one diffusion coefficients for an ozone flame are calibrated.
