Wifi Analysis in OS X

Aside from all those OS X wifi scanners originating from the Linux world, OS X comes with its own basic tool called `airport`. For quick access do the following:
~~~
sudo ln -s /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport /usr/bin/airport
~~~

Now, example usages can be:
~~~
airport en1 scan
~~~
or
~~~
airport en1 sniff 6
~~~
