Geostatistical Analyst - Kriging with output in regions defined by a zone data.

I am starting a new thread based on a hint from Bill Huber in the following thread:

Does ArcGIS Desktop (toolbox, geoprocessor) handle Kriging with output in regions defined as polygon feature class or raster?

As explained in the aforementioned thread, I have rasters of components of a wind field, and I want to compute the flow through edges of a multi-scale grid. I initially created buffers around the edges and I was performing a Zonal Statistics of each component using buffers as zonal features. Bill mentioned that a better option would/could be to use a Kriging tool that estimates averages directly in my buffers.

I didn't find such an option either in the tools from the toolbox or directly using the Geostatistical Wizard.

Any help with this would be much appreciated, because Zonal Statistics has some "natural" limitations that are difficult for me to cope with.

Best regards,

Cedric
