Editor's Note: The American Meteorological Society was invited last year (1973) by the Chinese Meteorological Society to send a small delegation to spend two weeks in the People's Republic of China. The visit took place in April and May 1974; this is the report of that delegation. The trip to the P.R.C. was unique as a people-to-people first visit, and therefore beyond the usual scientific exchange. The report attempts to record the societal, cultural, and scientific experience as a full account to the membership. It is hoped that the report will serve also as resource material for scientific exchanges with China in the future.
1The names of all the Delegation members are given at the beginning of Section 2. Organizer and editor of this report was W. W. Kellogg.
