Optimizing interpolation of shoot density data from a Posidonia oceanica seagrass bed

, : Optimizing interpolation of shoot density data from a Posidonia oceanica seagrass bed. Marine Ecology 27(4): 339-349

A case study on the optimization of Posidonia oceanica density interpolation, using a data set from a large meadow at Porto Conte Bay (NW Sardinia, Italy), is presented. Ordinary point kriging, cokriging and a weighted average based on inverse square distance were used to interpolate density data measured in 36 sampling stations. The results obtained from different methods were then compared by means of a leave-one-out cross-validation procedure. The scale at which interpolation was carried out was defined on the basis of the Hausdorff dimension of the variogram. Optimizing spatial scale and data points search strategy allowed obtaining more accurate density estimates independently of the interpolation method.
