I have a very special map to make: it's a sea bird density map. To do this, I interpolate the observation points with ordinary kriging with a variogram. As I've read, the variogram must be of "spherical" type. The default one in SAGA is linear, but one can modify the equation. My question is: which equation should I use?

    You can find the equation of the Spherical model for example here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variogram#Variogram_models. I think the last option from the drop-down menu is what you're looking for. But better check for yourself, I tend to make mistakes looking at equations written in this form.
