Abstract : The report deals with the climate of North Vietnam, Republic of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand for August. Essentially based on previously available data, however, precipitation analyses, ceiling/visibility, and upper air flow are new. The report contains brief notes on the climate of Southeast Asia and the geographical features of the Republic of Vietnam, North Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Thailand. The report discusses the precipitation, thunderstorms, cloudiness, visibility and obstructions to vision, combined ceiling/visibility, temperature, relative humidity, surface and upper winds, miscellaneous phenomena and sea operations. The report 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 thunderstorms, mean cloudiness, percent frequency of ceiling/visibility = or > 5000/5 and = or > 1000/2 1/2 (7 + 16 LST), daily max and min temperatures and mean relative humidity. For selected stations tabular data on fog days, percent frequency visibility 1 mile and 5 miles (7 + 16 LST) are given also. Mean streamline charts (1:37,500,000) are given for 2000 ft, 850mb, 700mb, 500mb, 300mb, and 200mb levels. Also included are charts of mean position of polar front and ICZ (1:17,000,000) typhoon tracks. (Author)
