Abstract : Convective activity over the Indochina Peninsula during the summer of 1967 is examined with the aid of radarscope-coverage data, in an attempt to determine the major factors influencing its synoptic variations. Variations in convective activity, as expressed by a radarscope-coverage index (RI), are related to the strength of the tropical trough, measures of stability and low-level moisture, and the presence and location of tropical cyclone activity in the South China Sea.
