wave cyclone

(Also called wave depression.) A cyclone that forms and moves along a front.

The circulation about the cyclone center tends to produce a wavelike deformation of the front. The wave cyclone is the most frequent form of extratropical cyclone (or low). It was the purpose of the wave theory of cyclones to explain its life cycle.
