The spatiotemporal power spectrum was calculated of 14 image sequences in order to determine the degree to which the spectra are separable in space and time, and to assess the validity of the commonly used exponential correlation model found in the literature. The spectrum was expanded by a Singular Value Decomposition into a sum of separable terms and an index was defined of spatiotemporal separability as the fraction of the signal energy that can be represented by the first (largest) separable term. All spectra were found to be highly separable with an index of separability above 0.98. The power spectra of the sequences were well fit by a separable model. The power spectrum model corresponds to a product of exponential autocorrelation functions separable in space and time.
