Characteristic variations in the three forces, viz., pressure gradient force, Coriolis force and factional force, in the monsoon boundary layer have been explored with the help of a one-dimensional model. The wind observations carried out at an inland station during MONTBLEX-90 have been utilised for this purpose. Variations were observed in the three forces during active and break monsoon periods. The height at which the Coriolis and pressure gradient forces showed balance ranged from 360-700 m and 500-600 m during break and active periods respectively.
