Abstract : Deals with the climate of North Vietnam, Republic of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand for June. Essentially based on previously available data, however, precipitation analyses, ceiling/visibility, and upper air flow are new. Contains brief notes on the climate of Southeast Asia and the geographical features of the Republic of Vietnam, North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. Discusses the precipitation, thunderstorms, temperature, relative humidity, surface and upper winds, miscellaneous phenomena and sea operations. Contains a station locator and topography map. Isoline analyses (map scale 1:9,000,000) are given for precipitation days, mean, maximum, and minimum precipitation, days with thunderstorm, mean cloudiness, percent frequency of ceiling/visibility greater than or equal to 5000/5 and greater than or equal to 1000/2 1/2 (7 and 16 LST), daily max and min temperatures and mean relative humidity. For selected stations tabular data on fog days, percent frequency visibility less than 1 mile and less than 5 miles (7 and 16 LST) are given also. Mean streamline charts (1:37,500,000) are given for 2000 ft, 850 mb, 700 mb, 500 mb, 300 mb, and 200 mb levels. Also included are charts of mean position of polar front and ICZ (1:17,000,000), typhoon tracks (1:10,000,000), sea surface currents, temperatures, frequency of breakers, sea swell (1:10,000,000). Monthly sunrise, sunset, morning and evening twilight data are presented for Saigon with method for adapting to other stations. (Author)
