Abstract : Preliminary research in regard to Southeast Asia regions is described under two topics, (1) Onset of the Asiatic Summer Monsoon and (2) Studies of Monsoon Cloud and Weather Patterns. Calendar dates for the commencement of the SW monsoon continue for the years 1942 through 1949. Daily variation of the wind, rainfall, and pressure patterns have been analyzed from August 1961 through October 1961. TIROS III pictures and radiation data are assisting in understanding the weather developments for this period. The conventional data at 500 mb appears to show more character, than lower or higher levels, in relation to existing weather (i.e. rainfall). (Author)
