Modern Marine Weather, 2nd Ed. by David Burch

A new, comprehensive text on how to take weather into account for the planning and navigation of voyages, local or global, using the latest technologies as well as the time-honored skills of maritime tradition, so that your time on the water remains as safe and efficient as possible.

Covers practical applications of GRIB files and other modern resources .

Preface to the Second Edition
New topics in this edition include the European ASCAT and Indian OSCAT satellite wind data and how to access it, barometer options, developments in numerical weather predictions, new weather resources for mobile devices, changes in NWS terminology and weather map conventions, new research that affects practical marine weather, and new data on ocean and coastal currents, among others.

A significant part of the update comes from use of the book in marine weather courses for five years in many different settings, from kayak clubs to Navy warships. We are grateful for the good reception and support of the text, and we acknowledge that by striving to improve it.

Essentially every page includes some effort to enhance the clarity and precision of the explanations. And we will continue to do so.

Things are still changing, and getting more exciting as time goes by.
