Abstract : Meteorological services in support of South China Sea naval operations during the Northeast Monsoon season may conveniently be divided into three parts, insofar as the surface wind field is concerned: (1) Specification of the current wind field, especially of wind speed; (2) prediction of monsoon 'surges'; and (3) special computations regarding the 'Gulf of Tonkin Eddy.' These three topics are discussed in the report.
