Written by an engineer-sailor-oceanographer, and based on the premise that all who go to sea will benefit from a broader interpretation of seamanship, this book attempts in simple terms to explain the ocean as an operating environment, how boats and ships behave in this environment, and what the average sailor can do to make any voyage safer and more pleasurable. Beginning with the oceans origin, the author describes its geography, circulation, climate, and meteorology. From waves and breakers he takes us through ship dynamics to strategies for heavy weather seamanship and emergency procedures. The author, William G. Van Dorn, confesses to having a lifelong love affair with the sea, whether swimming, surfing, diving, sailing, orfor the past forty yearsjust studying its many moods and facets. Readers of this book will find that his studying has yielded an exceedingly rich trove of knowledge about the dynamics of the sea and ways in which men and women who go to sea can handle its various conditions. According to Edmond L. Mandin, retired marine superintendent for American President Lines, Oceanography and Seamanship has a place in the masters research library of every APL containership. It is considered to be the primer for APL deck officers in the strategies of heavy weather seamanship. This book is an outstanding resource for both the recreational sailor and those in the shipping business who would like to learn more about the behavior of the ocean and the response of the craft that ply it. Originally slanted toward cruising yachtsmen, the book has gained a solid reputation among commercial fishermen, charter boat operators, and shipping companies. It is a reference at maritime academies and is used as a textbook in colleges and secondary schools.

Hello, World! is a series designed to help parents introduce simple nonfiction concepts to babies and toddlers. Now even the youngest children can enjoy learning about the world around them. Weather takes children through the seasonal changes in a backyard, showing them how a yard changes throughout the year: on a summer day the flowers are bright and a puppy plays on the green lawn; on a snowy day we see the same yard blanketed with snow; on a windy day the clothesline flaps in the breeze. Children can also have fun pointing to pictures of the different clothing we wear in each type of weather: mittens, hats, rain boots, and more. Told in an easy, friendly tone (“Look out the window. What is the weather like today?”) and featuring bright, cheerful illustrations, Hello, World! makes learning easy for young children. And each page offers helpful prompts for engaging with your child. It’s a perfect way to bring natural science into the busy world of a toddler, where learning never stops. “Written as simple questions and answers, this format provides just enough information for curious toddlers.”—Kirkus

Flooding of coastal communities is one of the major causes of environmental disasters world-wide. This textbook explains at a basic level, how sea levels are affected by astronomical tides, by weather effects that generate extreme flooding events, and over the longer term by ocean circulation and climate trends. It also indicates how sea level changes are related to changing risks, coastal dynamics, geology and biology; and outlines some of the economic and legal implications. Based on courses taught by the author in the UK and the USA, this book is aimed at undergraduate students at all levels, with the text developed in such a way that non-basic mathematics is confined to Appendices and a web site (http://publishing.cambridge.org/resources/0521532183/). Changing Sea Levels will also interest and inform professionals in many fields including hydrography, coastal engineering, geology, biology and also coastal planning and economics.

The Pacific Northwest experiences the most varied and fascinating weather in the United States, including world-record winter snows, the strongest non-tropical storms in the nation, and shifts from desert to rain forest in a matter of miles. Local weather features dominate the meteorological landscape, from the Puget Sound convergence zone and wind surges along the Washington Coast, to gap winds through the Columbia Gorge and the �Banana Belt� of southern Oregon. This book is the first comprehensive and authoritative guide to Northwest weather that is directed to the general reader; helpful to boaters, hikers, and skiers; and valuable to expert meteorologists. In The Weather of the Pacific Northwest, University of Washington atmospheric scientist and popular radio commentator Cliff Mass unravels the intricacies of Northwest weather, from the mundane to the mystifying. By examining our legendary floods, snowstorms, and windstorms, and a wide variety of local weather features, Mass answers such interesting questions as: o Why does the Northwest have localized rain shadows? o What is the origin of the hurricane force winds that often buffet the region? o Why does the Northwest have so few thunderstorms? o What is the origin of the Pineapple Express? o Why do ferryboats sometimes seem to float above the water's surface? o Why is it so hard to predict Northwest weather? Mass brings together eyewitness accounts, historical records, and meteorological science to explain Pacific Northwest weather. He also considers possible local effects of global warming. The final chapters guide readers in interpreting the Northwest sky and in securing weather information on their own.
