Abstract : In the first part of this paper, we prove hölderian and logarithmic stability estimates associated to the unique continuation property for the Stokes system. The proof of these results is based on local Carleman inequalities. In the second part, these estimates on the fluid velocity and on the fluid pressure are applied to solve an inverse problem: we consider the Stokes system completed with mixed Neumann and Robin boundary conditions and we want to recover the Robin coefficient (and obtain stability estimate for it) from measurements available on a part of the boundary where Neumann conditions are prescribed. For this identification parameter problem, we obtain a logarithmic stability estimate under the assumption that the velocity of a given reference solution stays far from 0 on a part of the boundary where Robin conditions are prescribed.
