BOILER OPERATOR'S HANDBOOK

This handbook has been specifically designed and published for the boiler operators having some basic knowledge and professional experience, but still willing to learn more to get his performance optimized. The material contained in this publication is presented very clearly, that is why this volume could be recommended to the industry workers to serve as a practical guide, especially for those who are making their first professional steps.

However, we would equally recommend this publication to the technical superintendents and managers who are interested in cost saving through reduction of the operating expenses of their facilities. The text of this handbook bases on the forty years of professional experience of the author, Ken Heselton, in operating the boiler plants, design and construction of boilers, as well as their start-up, periodical technical maintenance and retrofit. The publication contains the fundamental recommendations to the operators and managers of both small and large plants.

According to the reviews provided by the readers of the book, it was definitely prepared by someone who has actually been in the trenches and who knows and understands what exactly it means to run a boiler plant, to maintain all associated equipment and is fully aware of the relevant operational procedures.

BOAT MECHANICAL SYSTEMS HANDBOOK

Well, this is one of the most popular and recommended books on boat mechanical systems. Written by one of the recognized and world popular experts, Dave Gerr, it has proven to be extremely useful and practical to the millions of readers. The text is very clear and easy to understand.

They say that the present publication is the best one of all Gerr's books. There are so many books available today on the subject matter, but, unfortunately, big part of them concentrate on the lofty and fairly impractical theories; but the author of this book did his best to grill down to the true and tried solutions - in addition to that, he clearly explains why these principles have to be followed, supplementing the theory with some practical stories.

It is a truly amazing book treated as the Bible for the home boat designers and builders due to the wide range of they key boat systems covered, including tanks, steering, exhaust systems etc. - and all of them have been detailed to a level you will not find in any other similar publication. The images and drawings contained in the book make the reading very interesting, and the experiences included to supplement the technical data, turn this book into a solid reference source.

BIOGEOCHEMISTRY OF MARINE DISSOLVED ORGANIC MATTER

Today, we know that there is an incresingly high interest in the DOM, standing for the dissolved organic matter, and the reason is mostly because DOM plays one of the critically important roles in both global and oceanic cycling of carbon, which directly impacts weather. The primary goal of professionals in the fields of oceanography and marine biogeochemistry over the past decades was to properly understand all underlying processes of occurring during the transformations of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and other major chemical elements in the ocean waters.

The publication is arranged in sixteen chapters containing nearly two hundred informative figures and data tables, valuable reports on the major technological advances in the subject area, made by a group of experienced and world recognized pros in oceanography. Moreover, in it focusing on the major role that DOM plays in elemental cycling, and this is actually the area with a great informational demand.

Denniss Hansell and Craig Carlson did a remarkably good job in covering, in a single volume, literally all important aspects of the biogeochemistry of marine DOM and also providing a truly comprehensive review and introducing all important key issues, that made the present title maybe the best and definitely most up-to-date of those available today.

The present handbook was prepared by the BIMCO specialists and officially released by this organization with the ultimate aim to make readers a bit more conscious of the benefits and actual necessity of preparations to be done before they can commit themselves to undertaking a voyage that may bring their vessel into the waters covered by ice.

Note that this manual is not an attempt to cover all important areas of navigation in the iced waters, but it still aims to provide mariners with the elementary general guidance on all intricacies commonly involved in trading in such conditions. The publication is mainly expected to be used by navigators as a sort of quick reference tool and that is the reason why it shall be readily available to all people directly engaged in chartering well before they direct the ship into waters where ice might be present at the time of the intended passage.

BILLS OF LADING. A GUIDE TO GOOD PRACTICE

Some twenty years ago, a simple questionnaire was issued by the North of England P&I Association asking for their practical experiences related to the issue of the Bills of Lading together with the subsequent delivery of the cargoes against them. The answers received were analyzed and revealed numerous specific problems setting the recurring theme, namely the disagreements between the shore and ship's figures, pressure on the ship master to issue clean document, agents signing the bills of lading with no reference to the receipts from the mate or exceeding their authority, and requests for the cargo delivery with no original bill of lading produces.

The present guide starts with some brief introductory information about the bills of lading. In most of the international transactions where the cargoes are to be transported by sea, the seller promises to do two major things - the first thing is to place the goods on board a vessel, and the second thing is to provide all commercial documents that are required by the contract in place - and the central of those documents is commonly the bill of lading. The Master of the vessel describes the apparent order and condition of the cargo received on board. In some cases the Master is pressed to hide the information that would make the bill of lading look less attractive to the buyers...

BILLS OF LADING AND BANKERS DOCUMENTARY CREDITS

Here is the fourth edition of the world popular publication providing a straightforward guidance to the complexities and most important nuances of deals that are done under the documentary credit system and describing the law that applies to this subject. So many new forms of trade and associated documents have been forces since the very first edition of this book was released in 1990.

There has been so much development in the maritime law since that time. In fact, today the problems are not the same as they were at the time of the initial release of this publication. We can say that nowadays the documentary system itself is in the sort of crisis and is actually losing the popularity when compared to the other payment forms. For the present release of the book the author has tried to take a lesson from UCP 600 and remove the material not necessary.

This has resulted in the removal of most of the long quotations from judgments and inclusion of the full UCP test together with some statutory information into appendices. The entire book has also been restructured and is not a bit longer that the previous release. The book now is primarily dedicated to the documentary credits and associated documentation so the author did his best not to stray far from the main topic.
