An alternative technique is a solution of the regularized least-squares optimization problem

where is irregular data, is model estimated on a regular grid, is forward interpolation from the regular grid to irregular locations, is a scaling parameter, and is the regularization operator related to the inverse of the assumed model covariance. In our experiment, is the finite-difference gradient filter.

Figure 7 shows the interpolation result after 10 and 100 iterations. 100 iterations are not enough to converge to an acceptable solution, which is evident from the correlation analysis in Figure 8.
