9780470998038: The Sailor's Book of the Weather

Meteorology can seem like a black-art with the meteorologist producing forecasts that somehow seem to contradict what you are reading from the charts. The Sailor's Book of the Weather takes the confusion out of the forecasts and helps you answer, 'Why is that happening?' The Sailor's Book of the Weather introduces the key principles that influence the weather and gives the sailor the tools to forecast from observations and make the most of available information. Wind, clouds and knowledge of weather patterns and local conditions all contain ample hints to allow the informed forecaster to accurately predict the weather. Illustrated with charts and over 100 photographs, this book is a must on every boat and essential reading whether you are on the water in land, on the coast or venturing further afield.* Gives sailors the knowledge required to make informed decisions and predictions* Written in straightforward language with the science explained for the lay man* Includes dozens of illustrations to explain concepts and photographs to show weather systems in action* An appendix provides practice charts for the reader to develop their skills* Describes prevailing weather patterns in northern and southern hemispheres

About the Author:

Simon Keeling is proud to be a self-confessed weather anorak. From the age of nine he dreamed of being a TV weatherman and in 1995 that dream came true when he became weatherman for GMTV. He has done stints on all the main UK networks, but now spends more time writing about the weather, running weather courses for TV weather presenters, pilots and sailors, as well as running his own weather company. He is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society and has a Master of Science Degree in Applied Meteorology & Climatology from the University of Birmingham.

Review:

"...useful book...helpful illustrations and a chatty style, it breezes through the basic principles...full of useful website links". Yatching Monthly September 2008 "Giving you the tools to forecast from observations and how to make the most of this information."Boat Mart August 2008
