Models of spectral response

This code calculates the response at two types of wells: a sealed well and an open well (exposed to atmosphere).

Sealed Well

The theoretical model for a sealed well, where fluids are isolated from atmospheric pressure, responding to dilational strains from seismic waves is from Kitagawa, et al. (2011) which this package is named after.

Open Well

The first theoretical model for a sealed well responding to seimic displacements is from Cooper, et al. (1965).

This package also includes support for the models in Hsieh, et al. (1987). Rojstaczer (1988), and Liu, et al. (1989), which are based on various sources (i.e., tides, atmospheric pressure, and seismic waves).
