Captain Woodfield made 20 seasonal voyages to the Antarctic on three research ships between 1955 and 1974. Starting as a Junior Deck Officer he worked for The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey which in 1964 became the British Antarctic Survey. He played a paramount role in the gradual change from using under-powered and poorly-equipped ships to the professionally-managed and sophisticated vessels of his last command.
This book starts with a basic description of the workings of modern radars with a level of technological detail sufficient for deck officers of all grades.

This includes the setting up, adjustments and controls of the radar receiver and also the plotting computer (ARPA).
