Given two time series x and y having the same length and timestamp, this function computes the cross-wavelet power and wavelet coherence applying the Morlet wavelet, subject to criteria concerning: the time and frequency resolution, an (optional) lower and/or upper Fourier period, and filtering method for the coherence computation.

The output is further processed by the higher-order function `wc`

and can be retrieved from `analyze.coherency`

.

The name and layout were inspired by a similar function developed by Huidong Tian and Bernard Cazelles
(archived R package `WaveletCo`

).
The implementation of a choice of filtering windows for the computation of the wavelet coherence
was inspired by Luis Aguiar-Conraria and Maria Joana Soares (`GWPackage`

).
