This publication has been officially released by the Bureau of Meteorology and this is the fifth edition of the Notes. The content of the book is arranged in ten chapters. The first chapter describes the main objectives of the course, and is followed by the second chapter concentrating on the weather measuring instruments.
The third chapter is devoted to the high-pressure and low-pressure systems and fronts. The following three chapters are covering the weather map, wind and weather services. The remaining chapters of the publication are dealing with the waves and ocean currents, severe weather conditions, atmospheric moisture and clouds.
In addition to that, the book also includes six appendices providing useful supplementary information including terminology used in the weather forecasts and associated observations, list of the web resources, glossary of terms used, and self-test questions coming with the answers for tracking your learning progress.
The publication will present practical interest to the persons whose work activities are directly or indirectly affected by the weather conditions and mariners are definitely falling into this category of people.
