- Wavenumber-frequency diagram
A wavenumber-frequency diagram is a plot of a field that has been subjected to a
Fourier transformboth in space and time.
atmospheric sciences, these plots are a common way to visualize atmospheric waves. Usually, positive and negative frequencies are indicated on the y-axis(the vertical axis), while wavenumbers are indicated on the x-axis(the horizontal axis).
