Abstract:

Eighty-seven maps present the distribution in Southeast Asia Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Burma south of 25 degrees N. Latitude, and the peninsular portion of Malaysia of various climatic statistics of temperature, rainfall, and the temperature-humidity index. Maps for each month of the year have been prepared for mean monthly temperature, mean daily maximum temperature, mean daily minimum temperature, absolute maximum temperature, mean monthly rainfall, mean number of rainy days per month, and mean daily temperature-humidity index for the warmest hour of the day. Single maps of mean annual rainfall, the physiography of the region, and of the names and location of climatic stations are also included. The maps are drawn in considerable detail having been based not only on the available climatic data but also on the distribution of mountain ranges, major water bodies, and other geographic features. A brief text discusses the preparation of the maps and describes a few of the important distributional aspects of climate shown by the maps.
