A gridding method commonly called minimum curvature is widely used in the earth sciences. The method interpolates the data to be gridded with a surface having continuous second derivatives and minimal total squared curvature. The minimum-curvature surface has an analogy in elastic plate flexure and approximates the shape adopted by a thin plate flexed to… (More)
