Cornell's Ocean Atlas.
By Jimmy and Ivan Cornell.
An atlas of 129 pilot charts for sailors planning offshore voyages anywhere in the world.
Sixty monthly pilot charts of all oceans for the world show wind speed and direction, current speed and direction, approximate extent of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, the most common tracks of tropical storms, and the mean location of high pressure cells for each hemisphere.
Sixty-nine detailed charts of the most commonly sailed transoceanic routes make it easier to plan a route that takes best advantage of the prevailing weather conditions at that time of year. Sidebars with tactical suggestions have been added to the months when most passages are undertaken. The comments and tips on tactics, as well as weather overviews for each ocean, were contributed by meteorologists and routers specializing in those oceanic areas.
