Short summary
We analysed all-sky camera images observed at Mt. Bohyun observatory (36.2° N, 128.9° E) for the period of 2017–2019. We retrieved gravity wave parameters including horizontal wavelength, phase velocity and period from the image data. The horizontally propagating directions of the wave were biased according to their seasons, exerted with filtering effect by prevailing background winds. We also evaluated the nature of vertical propagation of the wave for each season.
