This publication was written by two prominent experts in the field of meteorology. Their joint efforts have eventually resulted in the perfect book giving readers the very latest information about the climate and weather as well as the earth science so that they can get introduced to the main theoretical concepts and all current issues.
This eleventh edition of the volume provides very clear and easy-to-understand explanations enabling students to get better understanding of how the information should be observed, calculated and synthesized. All weather phenomena including but not limited to the hurricanes and tornadoes have been discussed in detail.
The authors paid due attention to such important matters as precipitation and winds, seasons etc. It goes without saying that both professional and future mariners should all understand the importance of having a clear picture with regard to the meteorological matters since this normally plays one of the key roles in providing the safety of navigation of any vessel, and therefore we do recommend all people planning to work at sea, to go through the content of this book and get themselves duly familiarized at least with the basics of meteorology.
