Abstract : It is often possible to distinguish several more or less distinct wave trains when looking at the surface of the sea. The records of water elevation at a fixed point in a horizontal plane will then appear to be the sum of several periodic terms. The records of many other phenomena show a similar appearance and it is often desirable to investigate the relations between variability and periodicity of the record. Investigations of this type are called spectrum analyses. (Author)
