Abstract. We introduce a new tool – the Spectral Taylor Diagram (STD) – for the comparison of time series in the frequency domain. The STD provides a novel way of displaying the squared-coherence, power, amplitude, phase, and root-mean-squared difference of discrete frequencies of two time-series. Each STD summarises these quantities in a single plot, for multiple targeted frequencies. The versatility of STDs is demonstrated through a series of sea-level comparisons between observations from tide gauges, and model results from a global eddy-permitting ocean general circulation model with explicit tidal forcing.

Short summary
A new tool inspired on tides is introduced. The Spectral Taylor Diagram designed for evaluating and monitoring models performance in frequency domain calculates the degree of correspondence between simulated and observed fields for a given frequency (or a band of frequencies). It's a powerful tool to detect co-oscillating patterns in multi scale analysis, without using filtering techniques.
