Short summary
This study investigates the long-distance propagation (~ 1200–2000km) of gravity waves in the Indian subcontinent using coordinated nightglow measurements at Allahabad and Gadanki (separated by ~ 12º latitude). On few occasions, an identical wave (period in range ~ 2.2–4.5h) was seen at both sites that shared a common source. Waves had large horizontal wavelength (~ 1194–2746km) and phase speed (77–331m/s). The m2 profile analysis suggests the ducted propagation of the common waves.
