9780070120310: International Marine's Weather Predicting Simplified: How to Read Weather Charts and Satellite Images

Make your own weather forecasts with confidence! Now, read those Internet satellite images and NOAA weather faxes - to see what's heading your way. Comparing simultaneous NOAA weather charts and satellite photos of the same weather events, author and weather expert Michael William Carr shows you how to spot weather systems in the images and accurately predict winds and conditions in your immediate area. Learn how weather develops; warm and cold fronts; high and low pressure systems; jet streams; tropical storms; and all the other weather features you will encounter on charts and satellite photos."With this book there is no reason for prudent mariners to be surprised by imperfect weather forecasts or local conditions that general forecasts may not cover. Michael Carr, himself a proven mariner, has put together this excellent educational reference for his fellow mariners. I highly encourage you to read this book." - from the foreword by Lee S. Chesneau, Senior Forecaster, Marine Prediction Center, NOAA.
