Navies in Northern Waters 1721-2000

   Although previous volumes in this series have done something to correct the imbalance, most naval books in the English language tend to focus on the preoccupations, problems and fortunes of the larger maritime powers. This volume, however, concentrates on those of smaller navies. What is special about them? What are their concerns? How different in fact are they? The editors of this volume have assembled a collection of expert papers that help us explore all these issues. One thing that emerges very clearly here is how difficult it is to generalise about the characteristics of the 'smaller navy' that makes them different from their larger equivalents - apart, that is, from such obvious considerations as their tendency to have fewer large vessels in their order of battle. Many of the elements of distinctiveness emerge in this book. One, for example is a different doctrinal approach to their role and function. Smaller navies tend to be less concerned with the struggle for command of the high seas, focusing more narrowly on fighting in and for their narrow waters. Contesting command of the narrow seas, rather than that of the open ocean, seems to demand different capacities in the way of platforms, weapons and sensors, moreover. The functional priorities of smaller navies seem to differ too. They are, by and large, less concerned with the classic functions of seapower and more preoccupied with coastal defence and, especially these days, the protection of national resources within their own Exclusive Economic Zones. But the Norwegian example reveals the significant subtleties hidden within such preoccupations. Does coastal defence require the navy to work with land-based forces and, essentially, to concentrate on defeating invaders as they hit the beaches, or should it focus more on moving out to intercept attackers while they are still out at sea? In seeking to shift to the latter emphasis, the Norwegian Navy seemed to be adopting the approach of the larger navy - at least to some extent.

The Ultimate Guide to Safety Signs on Ships

   Safety signs and symbols are used extensively on board ships to alert crew members to working hazards, escape routes, type of equipment etc. These signs act as a pictorial illustration to help seafarers increase their level of personal safety on ships. Safety signs use a variety of colours and symbols, which have been acknowledged by the regulatory bodies of the shipping industry, to explain different aspects related to the operation and maintenance of the ships. It is imperative that sea going professionals are able to identify and understand the safety signs, as they greatly help in reducing the number of accidents on ships. In order to provide sea going professionals with a concise guide that would help them to identify safety signs quickly and easily, Marine Insight has specially compiled the eBook - "The Ultimate Guide to Safety Signs on Ships". If remembering the meaning of safety signs is a problem for you, then this pocket guide is your best friend. Each and every safety sign and symbol used on ships has been categorized and explained to help seafarers remember the signs in the most effective manner.

Schnellboot In Action

   Several forces shaped the best МTВ of World War Two, the Schnellhoot. These included the invention of the torpedo, developments in the engine, and restriction of the Treaty of Versailles, American contract for a luxury yacht, and, of course, naval hegemony of Great Britain forces. The term Schnellboot is the German for "speedboat" and we often referred to her as S-Boat. Just the same as when we use the term U-Boat to address submarines. The Kaiserliche Marine - Imperial German Navy - deployed their first motorboats in 1914, just before the World War One. These MTBs were well equipped to carry torpedo tubes; but, a torpedo shortage resulted in their redeployment in the Unterseeboot Zerstorer role...

California Maritime Archaeology

   Islands have long fascinated archaeologists, not only because of their isolation, but also for the opportunities they provide to examine profound cultural changes in circumscribed environments. The various controversies over the first settlement and ecological devastation of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), for example, suggest that students of ancient societies are attracted to remote land masses. Relative to its size, Rapa Nui has one of the densest concentrations of archaeologists in the world. Quite apart from its enigmatic moiae, the ancestors who presided over now-vanished societies, fieldworkers flock there to answer fundamental questions about island societies. Southern California's Channel Islands have long been a crucible of archaeological investigation. Generations of fieldworkers have delved into the origins and development of the maritime Chumash societies of the Santa Barbara Channel, one of the most complex hunter-gatherer societies on earth. A huge literature now encompasses both the mainland and island Chumash, especially in the context of the close relationships between the Northern Channel Islands and mainland communities. Numerous important studies have focused on the reasons for emerging social complexity on both sides of the channel. Debates about the increasing sophistication of Chumash societies have revolved around many issues, notably those of trade in shell beads, acorns, and other commodities, and also seafaring. The remarkable Chumash toniol, a distinctive planked canoe with excellent seafaring qualities, has long been at the center of these discussions— which is hardly surprising, given the unique nature of the tomol's design and impressive handling in open water. When did these remarkable craft come into being, and where did they originate? Were they the catalysts for more complex maritime societies in the Santa Barbara region? These questions are hotly debated and still unresolved. The scope of the debates has widened over the past twenty years, with the publication of important paleoclimatic data from tree rings on land and deep-sea cores of impressive resolution from the Santa Barbara Channel itself. After over a century of research, we are on the verge of major breakthroughs in our understanding of ancient island societies.

Japanese Light Cruisers of World War II In Action

   When Japan joined the World War Two in December of 1941, the IJN - Imperial HJapanese Navy - was made up of old 5500-ton light cruisers. The newest of them were three ships of Sendai class commissioned in 1925. The 10000-ton Tone and Mogami classes of cruisers had been designed secretly with 6-inch main armament in triple or 8-inch main guns in double turrets (they could be changed over), and this allowed them to be converted into heavy cruisers. The two Tone-class and four Mogami-class ships were modified and entered the War as part of the Imperial Japanese Navy heavy cruiser force...

Admiralty Guide to the Practical Use of ENCs

   Coastal states that are signatories to the SOLAS convention are responsible for ensuring availability of adequate and regularly updated-chart coverage for their waters, this includes ENCs. They should ensure the ENC data is produced conforming to the latest version of the S-57 standard, and carries the correct producer code of the maritime authority that has produced the ENC data. Only data issued by, or on behalf of, a government and which are constructed according to the S-57 standard can be considered to be ENCs, and meet IKO carriage requirements. All ENCs are therefore, by definition, official data. ENCs may be distributed to ships in the ECDIS's own internal working format known as System Electronic Navigational Chart (SENC). Where SENC distribution services are provided in accordance with IHO specifications, the ENCs in the service meet carriage requirements...
