Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393308847, Paperback)

The single most important fact of life to the racing yachtsman, cruiser, or merchant seaman is the weather. This book about the weather, written by a master mariner, sets out to fill the gap between "instant knowledge" books which prvide a veneer of jargon, and heavy texts requiring prior knowledge of meteorology. This book presents instead a seamanlike survey of the basics of weather, offering a foundation for practical observation and interpretation as well as a ground-work for advanced study. Basic information on the atmosphere, winds, heat and its consequences, clouds, fogs, fronts, tropical cyclones, ice, instruments and charts is provided here.
