U-Boats - History, Development and Equipment 1914-1945

   This book looks al the various classes of U-boat and their various weapons and sensors, and at the men who manned them and conducted this very protracted and hard fought campaign. It is divided into four parts: Part One - covers the U-boat in German naval service from the very earliest days, through its first great test in World War I to the clandestine campaign between 1919 and 1935, which was designed to keep U-boat technology and practice alive, despite the terms of the Versailles Treaty. Part Two - covers the major technological areas in the period 1935-1945, including descriptions of the various types of U-boat, their weapons, communications, sensors, and propulsion systems. Part Three - describes the campaigns, the men, their training, the sorry saga of Luftwaffe co-operation, U-boat losses, and the end of the campaign. Appendix at the end of the book is devoted to the U-boats lost at sea in the perioe 1939-1945.

Biogeochemistry of Marine Dissolved Organic Matter

   As this book attests, research on dissolved organic matter (DOM) in seawater has burgeoned in the past decade. This increase in activity is evident not only from the growing number of articles published each year in the scientific literature, but also from the topical breadth and broad integration of present research. The oceanographic community's perception of DOM has evolved from an emphasis on a dilute and largely separate pool of remarkably old and static substances to the current view of a dynamic assemblage of organic molecules that interact with each other, trace metals, and living organisms over a broad continuum of space and time scales. The sparingly reactive components of this molecular continuum that persist and change on time scales sampled by conventional oceanographic surveys represent a small molecular outcrop of a churning mass of molecules through which much of the total primary production of the ocean cycles...

The Colregs Guide - A Fully Illustrated Textbook

   Learning the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea (Colregs) will not in general present the nautical student with any insuperable problems. After passing several tests and exams the officer-to-be has the impression that the Colregs and the manoeuvres for giving way hold no secrets from him. The study of other nautical subjects often asks for more effort than is needed for mastering the Colregs. His first solo watch, taking place on an empty ocean, seems to corroborate this belief. Busy channels, however, demand a quite different approach to applying the Rules. Standard situations as described in the Colregs prove to be far less common than expected. Most situations are slightly different from those he has learned and they are not always so clearly related to a certain Rule. A lot of experience is needed to be able to interpret all these situations, especially at night when matching radar images with the real world calls for quite some effort and expertise. Self-reliance is a part of the job for a watch-keeping officer. This has a negative as well as a positive side. There is a real danger that one will not notice that the Colregs have been learned wrongly and are consequently falsely applied or interpreted. Sometimes an officer will not be receptive to corrections. A compulsory refresher course every 5 years or so might be a good remedy...

Medical Handbook for Seafarers

   When a vessel somewhere in the middle of the ocean, it is very difficult to get a doctor on board or to transport the ill or injured patient ashore. So, the success of the medical treatment depends on the medical know-how and treatment facilities available on board. The Master is officially responsible for the treatment given to people on board the ship. The crew's level of medical training is determined by the national and international regulations like STCW 95. In addition, the ship has necessary medical equipment. The international Radio Medical system was developed to compensate for the lack of well-trained medical staff on board. Via the service system of Radio Medical, a doctor on shore can be consulted free of charge. Improved telecommunication systems have facilitated direct contact between the crew and the shipping company's occupational health service or, for example, a designated health care facility. It is crucial that the person in charge of treatment on board is capable of recognizing the patient's symptoms and of following the patient's condition. Without these skills, describing the patient's condition to Radio Medical's doctor on land will not be successful. The Radio Medical system has been used in seafaring already for a hundred years. Video transmission, made possible by modern telecommunications technology, is not expected to significantly change the basic situation of on-board treatment. All the treatment given on board depends first and foremost on the know-how of the crew members. The equipment on board and even the finest communication technology are only complementary.
