Abstract : The monograph presents a general summary of field observations on convective clouds made in certain localities in China during the summer months of 1960 - 1962. The main subjects included are radar studies of the characteristics of the structure, development and movement of thunder-clouds and local cumulus congestus with synthetic analyses of results from individual cases, discussions of the observed characteristics of convective clouds (including orographic clouds, isolated cumulus clouds and thunder-clouds) at their various stages of development, statistical analyses of observations of convective clouds over various localities and studies of the relationship between atmospheric stratification associated with the development of convective clouds and the field of vertical motion. These studies provide a valuable contribution toward the understanding of the structure and processes of convective clouds in China. (Author)
