Abstract : An iterative (successive correction) method for objective analysis due to Bratseth is considered. The method converges to the statistical interpolation result in the limit. The properties of the scheme and a variation of it are discussed, and the results of some simulations performed earlier for other methods are given and compared. Keywords: Covariance functions; Eigenvalues; Eigenvectors.
