Preface to the third edition
A tremendous amount of the modern part of marine weather has changed in the past five years, which, with the addition of color, and all the benefits that brings, makes this a major update to the previous edition. We have greatly expanded the use of GRIB formatted forecasts, including overlays on weather maps and other images. High resolution rapid refresh models now make it possible to forecast local winds in digital format, which has a potentially revolutionary impact on day sailing in local waters—it’s not just for ocean passages any longer. An overview of optimum weather routing has been added, along with expanded discussion of ASCAT scatterometer winds, which are now available in GRIB format.
Excellent book!!! Everything you need to know about marine weather is here. A reference. Lear how to analyse meteorological charts and predict weather like an expert (sometimes even better than some of them) Мигает.
