GLOSSARY OF NAVIGATION

When preparing this glossary of navigation, the author was intending to provide young naval officers with the explanation of the navigation terminology trying to share his great marine experience. There is one thing that makes this glossary different from any other similar source of information. Each of the terms contained in the books is provided not only with full and clear explanation together with the different bearings with the analysis.

The articles are arranged in the alphabetical order and it is very easy to find the appropriate entry. The glossary has been serving the training needs of the many generations of maritime students so we can definitely say that its practical use and value are proven. We recommend all our users engaged in maritime shipping and marine navigation in particular to download a copy of this brilliant glossary and add it to their collection of navigation books.

Note that it will be particularly useful when you read the classic old-time books since the terminology used a century ago may differ from the navigation terms used today. Some of the terms are already obsolete and as such may not be contained in the contemporary glossaries and dictionaries.
