space-frequency domain

1. n. [Geophysics]
A display, also known as the f-k domain, of seismic data by wavenumber versus frequency rather than the intuitive display of location versus time for convenience during seismic processing. Working in the space-frequency domain provides the seismic processor with an alternative measure of the content of seismic data in which operations such as filtering of certain unwanted events can be accomplished more effectively.
