Abstract : Recent independent results from several sources encourage the further consideration of highly probable correlations between the time of the onset of the southwest monsoon over southern South Vietnam, the advance of the southwest monsoon up the west coast of India, and stratospheric and mesospheric dynamics. This paper discusses these independent results, expresses the author's observations on the topic, and shows that an interrelationship or correlation exists between the southwest monsoon and the stratospheric circulation. This information is presented as an example of the value of synoptic meteorological rocket network data. (Author)
