Thirteen chapters of the publication are covering the theory of charting and surveying, Admiralty publications, paper and electronic charts and diagrams, digital navigation, and flow of information between UKHO and navigators, the sea and meteorology including all important aspects such as warning signals, climate, weather routing of vessels, storms and cloud formations, tidal streams and ocean currents, tsunamis, rollers and sand waves etc.
