Description: MARINE WEATHER is a compendium of weather observation and elements of sky, wind, and wave material understandable to the yachtsman. Meteorology as the science that deals with weather and weather forecasting can be used effectively to improve the art of navigation and safety at sea only if a well-informed person of mature judgement and experience is on hand to interpret information as it becomes available. Thus, this book provides the basic facts of weather observation, tropical cyclones, ocean conditions, tides and tidal currents, ocean currents, ocean waves, breakers and surf and other related weather elements necessary to the mariner.
The material reprinted in this book is taken from the latest edition, 1977, AMERICAN PRACTICAL NAVIGATOR: AN EPITOME OF NAVIGATION (U.S. Defense Mapping Agency Hydrographic Center, Washington, D.C., 20390); "Bowditch," as it is called, has been a primary resource for yachtsmen since its first publication in 1802 by the U.S. Navy. Because of its voluminousness many boat owners are reluctant to keep it aboard for lack of space. MARINE WEATHER is designed to be taken aboard, includes essential information about weather, and can provide interesting reading on rainy days.
