Abstract : The research was conducted within a 3-month period in response to a COMNAVFORV requirement for a more reliable wind and sea prediction capability in Vietnam coastal waters. The purposes of this investigation were to prepare an improved wind climatology for the months of October and November, and to develop an objective technique for making short-range forecasts of the day-to-day variations in surface wind speeds for designated areas along the Vietnam coast.
