This function gets the nomograph which shows the relationship between the wavelength, wave period and water depth using the dispersion equation.

0. Syntax:
>> wavelenvsth

1. Inputs:
None.

2. Outputs:
Nomograph.

3. Example:
>> run(wavelenvsth)

4. Notes:
- It's only necessary to run the function.
- In the nomograph, it is activated the data cursor mode in order to get the wavelength and waver depth in function of the water period.
- Wave depths in meters.
- Wave length in meters.
