Seabreezes are the lifeblood of cruising and racing sailors - but they are a fickle resource and it's vital to be able to predict and read the situations when they will blow strongly, change direction (annoyingly) or vanish altogether. This is a highly practical handbook from Alan Watts, the renowned meteorology author, on a subject only lightly touched upon in other books. Here he helps seafarers of all types (dinghy sailors, yacht racers, big boat cruisers, etc) to capitalise on when the seabreeze will occur and from what direction. He will explain the relevance of: - Time of day - Sea/land temperature - Local topography (bays, cliffs, headlands, etc) - Pressure systems and their effect on the arrival and duration of seabreezes Illustrated with photos, wind charts, box-outs, checklists, and tips and hints, this is the book that will help sailors to use the wind efficiently, whether to cruise or race successfully.

Space weather is considered to be conditions on the Sun and in the solar wind, magnetosphere, ionosphere, and thermosphere that can influence the reliability and performance of space-borne or ground- based technological systems. Song (environmental earth and atmospheric sciences, U. of Massachusetts), Singer (Space Environment Center, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), and Siscoe (Center for Space Physics, Boston U.) present 50 articles on current understanding and advances in the description and prediction of space weather. Nine of the articles, accessible to non-specialists, touch upon broad issues of space weather in the area of technology, science, industry, and commerce. The remaining articles are geared more towards the scientific community and address the sun and its influence on space weather, specification and prediction of the magnetosphere, and specification and prediction of the ionosphere and thermosphere.
