Reeds Maritime Meteorology is written primarily for serving and trainee deck officers, those studying for certificates of competency in merchant ships and for fishermen. It provides descriptions of the elements and forces which contribute to maritime meteorology and the principles which govern them, and deals specifically with:

  • weather forecasting at sea and the use of fax, navtex and saltellite technology
  • ocean currents and swell
  • tropical revolving storms
  • the development and distribution of sea ice
  • weather routeing
  • passage planning
  • the management and care of cargo in heavy weather



There is an extensive glossary, revision questions at the end of each chapter, and a fold-out chart of ocean currents as well as numerous explanatory photos and diagrams. For this revised edition, the content and website addresses have been updated.
