This book is a compilation of all the formulae that a mariner is commonly called upon to use but the exact workings of which he has perhaps forgotten. For each subject category, the author states the basic parameters in narrative form, often including a figure, graph, chart, diagram, or table, and then provides accompanying equations and their amplifications. Although some formulae that are simpler in format are propounded in other texts, many of those formulae lead to confusion in that a oespecial rulesa must be applied to them in order to obtain a correct answer. However, the rules applied to the formulae in this book work for all problems. In a great circle sailing situation, for example, the fact of whether the vertex is ahead of you or behind you does not matter--if you apply the rule(s) given in this book, you will get the correct answer. Another important feature of the book is its devotion of over ten pages of material to the international system of units (S.I.)

Whereas numerous tomes of comprehensive studies of navigation and related subjects are readily available for the professional navigator, there is dearth of publications suitable for the amateur navigator in a "how-to" form. Furthermore, the appearance of relatively inexpensive electronic devices, such as the GPS, has lured would-be navigators away from the traditional methods of navigation, in spite of the warnings offered by the companies producing these devices. Thus they overlook the "sine qua non" of good navigation, the determination of the current velocity, that is the set and drift. Once determined this component of the navigational triangle makes precise navigation a snap, whereas without it there is only uncertainty. Most students are turned off by the need to acquire a practical application of basic formulae employing basic trigonometry and later spherical trigonometry, methods which have evolved over the centuries from the beginning of the Age of Exploration in the early 1400's to modern days. In this text we develop the knowledge and application of these mathematical processes in such a way as to reassure the student that these techniques are not beyond his capabilities.

Sea Power is more than naval ships and men and weapons, more than naval strategy, more than the ability to engage and defeat an enemy at sea. Sea Power encompasses every strength con-tributed to a nation's defense, economy, self-image, and position in the world community through its use of the oceans. Sea Power is measured by the health of a na-tion's navy and merchant marine; the vitality of its fishing and shipbuilding enterprises; the adequacy and efficiency of its ports and docks. It is reckoned by the ability to husband and harvest the living and non-living resources of the waters and the ocean floor. It is found in maritime recreational activity that invigorates both people and industry. It benefits from the inspiration that stimulates man's imagination to an ever more creative relationship with the sea. This book assesses these components of sea power from the historical perspective of the Yankee Mari-ner, to provide a view of the total impact United States sea power has had in the past and should have in the future. It further considers how understand-ing and stewardship of the oceans can contribute to solutions for the problems of America and the dilem-mas of mankind. The words are those of specialists in ocean science and engineering...sea transport and the building of ships and ports...ocean politics and law...deep-sea mining and underwater oil production...fishery biology and management, and aqua culture... naval history, naval strategy, and defense policy at sea. Drawing upon a vast store of experience and exper-tise, these fifteen authors find Uncle Sam faltering as a Yankee Mariner. They investigate the extent of hu-man commitment and the nature of scientific and technical support needed for the United States to regain its momentum in use of the sea. What they report is a broad-based guide to America's past and present sea power stance, and to the requirements for her future challenge of ocean space.

Mother Nature declares war on the West Coast in this“terrifying, suspenseful, and vividly told” action thriller: “A must for high-seas-adventure fans” (Booklist). Richard and Robin Mariner are in Long Beach, California, overseeing the arrival of their container ship, Sulu Queen. From there, the adventuresome couple plan to join their friend Nic aboard his fifty-million-dollar motor yacht as he races his daughter in an Olympic-standard Katapult multihull down the coast to Mexico. But when a catastrophic once-in-a-thousand-years megastorm known as an ARkStorm overwhelms them, Richard and Robin are forced to turn the Sulu Queen into a real Noah’s ark. Richard must guide her into the deadliest weather the Pacific has ever seen as he fights to save those closest to him—as well as countless other lives. “Readers who batten down the hatches and keep the Dramamine handy should enjoy the rough but rewarding ride.” —Publishers Weekly on Thunder Bay “Tense, action-packed and authentic-feeling, especially in its welcome attention to maritime detail.” —Kirkus Reviews on Deadly Impact
