Spatial interpolation of large climate data sets using bivariate thin plate smoothing splines

Hutchinson, Michael; Hancock, P A


Thin plate smoothing splines are widely used to spatially interpolate surface climate, however, their application to large data sets is limited by computational efficiency. Standard analytic calculation of thin plate smoothing splines requires O(n3) operations, where n is the number of data points, making routine computation infeasible for data sets with more than around 2000 data points. An O(N) iterative procedure for calculating finite element approximations to bivariate minimum generalised...[Show more]
