This workbook was designed to supplement the text Modern Marine Weather with practice questions and convenient resources, but it can also be used by those who have learned or are studying marine weather from other sources.

It covers all aspects of practical marine weather. This workbook is used in training programs around the US. The questions and procedures covered will benefit every mariner whose job it is to take weather into account on the planning and navigation of ocean, coastal, or inland voyages. This is especially valuable knowledge for racing sailors who wish to achieve that extra edge on their competitors.

It is a through overview of the subject. Anyone who answers all of these questions can be confident that they have a firm and practical grasp of marine weather that will enhance their interpretation and planning around the weather.

Sections on weather map reading are included. There are multiple choice questions as well as short essay questions all with complete answers.

The section called Points to Ponder along with their answers provide a summary of the key decisions that must be made in practical marine weather, both in planning and underway.

The book is designed for all mariners, recreational and professional. The level of training covered exceeds that required for any sailing program certification or professional deck license exam. Note that this workbook is not needed by those taking our online course on Marine Weather, because the Weather Workbook contents are presented in that course.
