Abstract : Initial research in regard to Southeast Asia regions is described under three topics: (1) dynamics and energetics of stationary monsoon systems; (2) day-to-day variations in the Asiatic summer monsoon season; and (3) onset of the Asi atic summer monsoon. Daily variations of wind structure, rainfall, etc. in the Asiatic summer monsoon season are superimposed on a very strong quasi-stationary circulation which is much more persistent than found, for instance, in the Atlantic or Pacific trade regions. Tentative calendar dates for the commencement of the SW monsoon for several pilot balloon stations in Southeast Asia were determined for the years 1936-1941, inclusive.
