Moreton waves are flare-associated waves observed to propagate across the solar disk in H$\alpha$, especially in the wing of H$\alpha$. The Flare Monitoring Telescope at Hida Observatory of Kyoto University observed 12 events associated with flare waves (i.e., Moreton waves and/or filament oscillations) in H$\alpha$ from 1997 to 2002. We review our studies of Moreton waves based on these observations;

  1. relation between EIT wave and Moreton wave (Eto et al. 2002),
  2. simultaneous observation with X-ray wave (Narukage et al. 2002),
  3. three dimensional structure of flare-associated wave (Narukage et al. 2004),
  4. relation between Moreton waves and filament eruptions.
