Zephyr is the product of research at the University of Western Ontario, with funding through a NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship to Brendan Smithyman and an NSERC Discovery Grant to R. Gerhard Pratt. The implementation of anisotropic acoustic wave equation (zephyr.backend.Eurus) is the work of Shaun Hadden, an MSc candidate at UWO.

In addition, Zephyr interoperates tightly with SimPEG, a flexible tool for designing and executing geophysical inversion problems. In turn, both Zephyr and SimPEG are dependent on the Python programming language, NumPy, SciPy and Jupyter/IPython. Please check out and support these open-source projects.
