Iterating Kriging with Anisotropy

I'm trying to write a python script that will run kriging interpolation with anisotropy on 700+ variables in a dataset. I've read a lot already about using the Create Geostatistical Layer tool and was able to code it but cannot get it to automatically iterate through all my fields. It seems like I'd have to manually change the field each time which is just not efficient with the number of columns I have.


I've done an iteration before for a simple IDW interpolation using ListFields but it doesn't seem to work with this interpolation method.


Can anyone shed some light on this? I've pasted my code below. I'm VERY new to python so I apologize if it's a mess.


import os
import arcpy
import arcpy, os
from arcpy import env
from import *
Sediment1999 = "C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\StableIsotopeData.gdb\\Sediment1999"
arcpy.env.workspace = r"C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\StableIsotopeData.gdb"
arcpy.env.extent = "C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\DetroitRiverBoundary.shp"
arcpy.env.mask = "C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\DetroitRiverBoundary.shp"


fieldList = arcpy.ListFields("Sediment1999", field_type="Double")
fieldNames = [ for f in fieldList ]
for name in fieldNames :
    Kriging45 = arcpy.GeostatisticalDatasets("C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\Kriging45.lyr")
    Kriging45.Sediment1999 = "C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\StableIsotopeData.gdb\\Sediment1999"
    Kriging45.Sediment1999name = name
    arcpy.GACreateGeostatisticalLayer_ga("C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\Kriging45.lyr", "C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\StableIsotopeData.gbd\\Sediment1999 name", "GaLayer"+name)
    arcpy.GALayerToRasters_ga("GALayer"+name, (os.path.join("C:\\Users\\courtney\\Desktop\\MundleStableIsotope\\Anisotropic\\Sediment\\1999", name+".tif")), "PREDICTION")


EDIT: Below is the error message I get.

Thanks so much,
