There's a new book on everything you wanted to know about oceanographic fieldwork but were (almost) too afraid to ask.

"The Oceanographer's Companion: Essential Nautical Skills for Seagoing Scientists and Engineers" has been just published by my former PhD Co-adviser, Prof. George Maul at Florida Institute of Technology.

Professor Maul is a great communicator. I'm glad his practical knowledge on oceanographic fieldwork is finally available to all.

Book Summary

Scientists and engineers embarking on their first voyage for oceanographic or meteorological research are often unprepared for the experience. Going to sea involves learning a new language - that of the seaman. This is necessary for clear communications, for the safety and well-being of the members of the scientific party and the ship's crew. The Oceanographer's Companion is intended to familiarize a student with the basics of navigation, seamanship, marine engineering, communications, safety-of-life-at-sea, ship handling, knots and splices, first aid, and so much more. The book will have a very practical feel with lots of examples.
