An open source python package for simulation and gradient based parameter estimation in geophysical applications.
Contribute to a growing community of geoscientists building an open foundation for geophysics. SimPEG provides a collection of geophysical simulation and inversion tools that are built in a consistent framework.
Finite volume tools that work across many different discretizations and dimensions. Simulate your geophysical method in 1D, 2D, 2.5D, 3D and through time. Refine around areas of interest using an OcTree.
The SimPEG inversion framework is modular, allowing you to explore, experiment and iterate over a variety of approaches to the inverse problem.
The easiest way to install SimPEG is from PyPI, using pip. If you get stuck or have no idea what a pip is, jump on Slack or Discourse to ask the community a question!!
SimPEG is a community of scientists and volunteers who are excited to help you out, please give back to the community by sharing your successes and citing the project! Here are some ways you can contribute:
