Abstract. In this paper we introduce the field line resonance detector (FLRD), a wave telescope technique which has been specially adapted to estimate the spectral energy density of field line resonance (FLR) phase structures in a superposed wave field. The field line resonance detector is able to detect and correctly characterize several superposed FLR structures of a wave field and therefore constitutes a new and powerful tool in ULF pulsation studies. In our work we derive the technique from the classical wave telescope beamformer and present a statistical analysis of one year of ground based magnetometer data from the Canadian magnetometer network CANOPUS, now known as CARISMA. The statistical analysis shows that the FLRD is capable of detecting and characterizing superposed or hidden FLR structures in most of the detected ULF pulsation events; the one year statistical database is therefore extraordinarily comprehensive. The results of this analysis confirm the results of previous FLR characterizations and furthermore allow a detailed generalized dispersion analysis of FLRs.
