Resistics was originally developed by Neeraj Shah, who also continues to maintain the package. Inspiration for the project has come from people within the magnetotelluric community. Particular mention goes to Dr. Friedemann Samrock at ETH Zurich for providing assistance and a keen eye and Professor Martin O. Saar, also of ETH Zurich, for the opportunity to learn more about the field.
At this time, resistics is a part-time pursuit. If anyone is interested in contributing to resistics and helping maintain the package, please use the information on the GitHub repository to make contact and express your wish to contribute.
A paper covering the features and benefits of resistics is in the works. Please check back at a later date.
