Abstract : This monograph is a part of the report of a research project on the problems of the east Asiatic monsoon carried out by the Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology, Academia Sinica during the past several years. It consists of three parts. The first part presents a critical survey of the past views and research approaches of meteorologists in different countries to the monsoon problem and includes a summary of the author's (Kao's) views. The second part discusses in greater detail the formation factors of the east Asiatic monsoon climate and some of its characteristic features in China. It proposes a division of China into different monsoon regions. The third part studies the development in summer and decay in winter of the monsoon in relation firstly to the seasonal variation of the general circulation, and secondly to the beginning and end of the rainy season in China. Based on the studies outlined above, tentative conclusions on the problems are given. This reference monograph is intended for those working in the fields of meteorology, climatology and geography.
