Synopsis: A comprehensive text on how to take weather into account for the planning and navigation of voyages, local or global, using the latest technologies as well as the time-honored skills of maritime tradition, so that your time on the water remains as safe and efficient as possible. Covers practical applications of GRIB files, ASCAT wind measurements, and other modern resources.

Review:

A thoughtfully and masterfully crafted work. It will be my prime recommendation of a book focusing specifically on the application of weather information and knowledge for maritime interests, whatever the size and purpose of the vessel. David thoroughly explores the essentials of meteorology, and does so in a fascinating manner. What makes Modern Marine Weather particularly valuable is the inclusion of countless applications of weather to actual situations faced by sailors or skippers on the water. Reading and absorbing these principles and applications will lead to safer, faster and more efficient passages.

-- Jeff Renner, Meteorologist, King 5 TV, Seattle, WA.

I have chosen this book as the definitive text for the wardroom of my U.S. Navy Destroyer. Superior explanations that are as useful for the professional naval officer as they are for the coastal pleasure cruiser or blue water sailor. Consistent with all of David Burch's texts: Easy to read, fascinating, and the absolute best resource.

-- CDR Tate Westbrook, CO USS Spruance (DDG111).

No subject is more important to every sailor than the wind and its direction. Modern Marine Weather is first class reference book on the subject of marine weather and the information it contains will help every sailor, every day!

-- Peter Isler, two-time America's Cup winning navigator.

The 21st Century is bringing us a rapid evolution in weather information available to the common sailor. Modern Marine Weatherpoints out where to find the best stuff quickly. The book also gives a thorough review of how to read weather maps and digest storms warnings, as well as tips on how to read clouds and use the wind to win coastal yacht races, or how to interpret GRIB data and Scatterometer pilot charts on Google Earth to sail comfortably across an ocean.

--Bob McDavitt, MetService (NZ) Weather Ambassador and forecaster for EarthRace.

"Modern Marine Weather is an instant classic. If you own one book about weather this is it. If you are navigating across the Pacific, the Atlantic or the Equator you'll make better decisions and truly understand the machinery behind the wind, waves, and currents after studying this book. If you are preparing for an Olympic regatta in Melbourne, Weymouth or San Francisco and want to make your own intelligent forecast and pick-up local knowledge like a local, you will find all the information in this most excellent book. Serious about weather and navigation: Get Modern Marine Weather by David Burch."

--Philippe Kahn, technology innovator, CEO of FullPower Technologies, and champion racing sailor.

"David Burch's Modern Marine Weather is a fresh and practical guide to understanding the complexities of marine weather and modern forecasting. The book fills a serious void in the literature. Voyagers will profit from a serious study of the material discussed in this book."

--Ocean Navigator Magazine, March-April, 2009

"Modern Marine Weather is an essential reference for the coastal and offshore sailor. It goes far beyond the traditional "marine weather" books. There may be new tools available for weather forecasting, but weather itself has been around a very long time and David does an excellent job of laying proper foundations for understanding marine weather, and bringing clarity to a complex topic."

--Jim Corenman, racing and cruising sailor, and developer of the SailDocs and Sailmail programs.
