Abstract : Surface wind conditions in the Cua Viet River area are examined to determine the nature of the strong, southwesterly, Winds-of-Laos situations which occur during the Southwest Monsoon. A preliminary indicator of not only the intensity and areal coverage of these strong winds, but also their diurnal variability, is found in the 850-mb. and 2,000-ft. flow over eastern Thailand.
