In [8], the authors proposed a numerical dispersion by introducing an upstream interpolation method, namely, QUICK (Quadratic Upstream Interpolation Convective Kinematics), for one-dimensional unsteady flow.
The spatial variability of soil properties is often assessed with data interpolation (Silva et al., 2017), however, selecting a proper spatial interpolation method is important, since different methods of interpolation can lead to different results (Li & Heap, 2011)

Referring to previous studies, Cressman interpolation [16] is used as the first-choice for the IPS owning to its simple operation.
Because the constraints of interpolation are relatively small, it is more appropriate to use the interpolation algorithm to complete or refine the entire data space in the case of spatial incomplete acquisition.
