Many problems in the field of acoustic measurements depend on the direction of incoming wave fronts w.r.t. a measurement device or aperture. This knowledge can be useful for signal processing purposes such as noise reduction, source separation, de-aliasing, and super-resolution strategies among others. This paper presents a signal processing technique for the identification of the directions of travel for the principal plane wave components in a sound field measured with a circular microphone array. The technique is derived from a finite rate of innovation data model and the performance is evaluated by means of a simulation study for different numbers of plane waves in the sound field.
