We propose the application of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) analysis to the photospheric vertical velocity field obtained through the data acquired by the THEMIS telescope, to recover a proper optimal basis of functions. As first results we found that four modes, which are energetically dominant, are nearly sufficient to reconstruct both the convective field and the field of the “5-min” oscillations.
