The preliminary results of the upper atmosphere wave structure analysis registered in OH airglow and accompanying conditions in tropo- and stratosphere are given. Wave structures were registered by infrared and color CCD-cameras in Geographical Observatory ISTP SB RAS (52º N, 103º E). Data received during February-August 2009 have been analyzed. Optical data of observations are compared with temperature profiles MLS satellite data, zonal wind data and with meteorological situation in tropo- and stratosphere latitude. The main purpose of the work was in the attempt of state and disturbances definition of the influence of atmosphere characteristics in tropo- and stratosphere latitude on distribution and observation frequency of gravity waves in upper mesosphere
Keywords: gravity waves, nightglow, OH
