One of the oldest publications available today and covering the subject of the ocean meteorology. It is a truly classic volume. The main content of the textbook is based on the annual lectures read by the author of this publication at the world famous Royal Naval College. The author has omitted most of the theoretical part making the focuses on the practical issue of making passages from one port to another.

There are eight chapters in this book. The first chapter provides general introductory information about the meteorology, characteristics of the atmosphere, wind force, moisture, rain and clouds, low and high pressure areas etc. The second chapter addresses the ocean characteristics, currents, southern and northern ice etc, while the third chapter has been devoted to the North and South Atlantic Ocean together with the current systems and winds.

The fourth chapter is dealing with the Indian Ocean and passages across it. The last three chapters of the textbook cover the Indian Archipelago and China Sea North Pacific Ocean, again with the wind and current systems, hurricanes and cyclones, prognostics, law of storms, ocean depth and temperature, ocean density and saltiness, circulation of the ocean waters, isothermal charts and many other important aspects of the ocean meteorology.
