Written primarily for serving and trainee deck officers, those studying for certificates of competency in merchant shipping and fishermen, Reeds Maritime Meteorology analyses the elements and forces which contribute to maritime meteorology and the principles which govern them. Updated to include the latest developments in the use of satellite technology in forecasting, Navtext and the ramifications of GMDSS, the book examines: · cloud formation and development · precipitation and thunderstorms · atmospheric pressure and wind · ocean currents and swell · tropical revolving storms · the development and distribution of sea ice · weather routeing · passage planning · the management and care of cargo in heavy weather This revised edition covers significant developments in the variety of forecasts available for the seafarer, coverage of global warming and weather routing options, as well as updates throughout in line with technological advancements and research discoveries, and updates to the exam questions at the end of each chapter.

Reeds Marine Surveying is aimed at students of marine surveying, professional marine surveyors, boatyard operators and technically-minded boat owners, and covers the latest marine surveying technology, including analysis of the mechanical behaviour of materials, failure analysis, stress concentration, fatigue and fracture, corrosion, wood-damaging organisms, polymer chemistry, and the composition and characteristics of common plastics, metal, alloys and composite materials. This new edition expands its scope to include coverage of surveying topics relevant to ships and class surveying and includes more examples of common problems and the practical elements of surveying, as well as be updated throughout in line with technological developments, guidelines and best practice. Reeds Marine Surveying has been in print for nearly twenty years and excellently serves the community of marine surveyors by providing technically robust presentations of this discipline. It extends the inquiry of inspection and safety beyond anecdote and into foundation principles and technologies.

Key scientific research by authors including Kerry Emanuel, Robert Burpee, Edwin Kessler, and Louis Uccellini illustrates the evolution of the fields of synoptic meteorology, weather analysis, forecasting, and climatology. It is published in honor of the late Fred Sanders, emeritus professor of meteorology at MIT, whose influence was vast: he coined the term “bomb” for explosively intensifying winter storms; he established the roles of low-level horizontal confluence and convergence in frontal collapse; and he invented the field of oceanic mesometeorology. This monograph is both an essential tool for educating future weather researchers and a testament to Sanders’s legacy of teaching.
