Output least squares stability for the diffusion coefficient in an elliptic equation in dimension
two is analyzed. This guarantees Lipschitz stability of the solution of the least squares
formulation with respect to perturbations in the data independently of their attainability.
The analysis shows the influence of the flow direction on the parameter to be estimated.
A scale analysis for multi-scale resolution of the unknown parameter is provided.
