AMWG Variability Diagnostics for 6-Hourly Data


Wavenumber-Frequency Power Spectra

Zonal wavenumber-frequency logarithm of power spectra calculated from 06Z and
18Z data (summed 15S to 15N) of anti-symmetric and symmetric components of data.

Fortran code for computing the space-time spectra and the observed OLR dataset
supplied by Matthew Wheeler.
See Wheeler and Kiladis, JAS, vol 56, 374-399, 1999.

The observed OLR data is from NOAA polar-orbiting satellites and covers
the period 1979-2000. The CAM3 Amip (t42) and NCEP Reanalysis data are for the
period 1991-2000.
