Low and high pressure areas, tropical cyclones and heavy ice conditions? The seafarer can be confronted with this in daily professional practice and therefore cannot do without a good knowledge of meteorology.
Fortunately, the crew on board does not have to predict the weather themselves. The weather information comes in via the internet, satellite, navtex or other means of communication. Often in large quantities at the same time. However, this information needs to be valued to make the right choices.
In Meteorology, Willem van IJzeren, author and former teacher at the maritime school in Delfzijl, treats numerous “maritime” topics such as fog and clouds, atmospheric pressure and wind, weather systems, ocean currents and waves. This information is clearly explained with many drawings and photos in this book and is especially for MBO nautical students but also for anyone interested in meteorology.
