Rather than average the recordings from each station for a given cell, we apply a weight to the relevant recordings for a given cell and then sum the recordings. The weight is the normalized inverse of the distance between the location of the recording and the center of the cell, having the form

is the interpolated recording at cell , is the weight applied to station when interpolating for cell , is the recording at station , and is the distance between the center of the cell and the relevant station at location . This interpolation scheme weights recordings that are closer to the center of the cell more so than those recordings that are closer to the edges of the cell. The normalization of the weights by the sum of the weights ensures that the amplitudes from cell to cell are relatively similar, particularly because the amplitudes at each station were first normalized.
