Reeds Marine Distance Tables, 14th Edition

Ship management has constantly had to evolve to take into account the advancements in technology as well as the demands of the shipping industry. Having internet access and email on board ship has meant that the ship manager has to possess certain sets of skills to function effectively in the post, including computer literacy. The emergence of large multi-national ship management companies has also changed how business is conducted and this is turn means that the ship manager and tiers of management within the organization have had to evolve to cope with the demands of working with a multi-national workforce. Furthermore, since the mid-1980s there has been an ever expanding raft of legislation that is more restrictive for companies to meet, and a shrinking of profit margins has seen a shift in how companies are required to operate to survive.

This book addresses the demands of 21st century ship management with the focus of the book as much about the people who manage ships as about the theory and practice of ship management. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-21st-century-ship-management-9781472900685/#sthash.6h2dgqR6.dpuf

Reeds Marine Distance Tables are the perfect ready-reckoner for captains, navigators, owners of merchant and cruise ships large and small, and, increasingly, the superyacht fleet wanting a quick and accurate distance reference between all the regularly used commercial ports around the world.

The book is divided into key “market areas” and includes a pull-out map for area identification and easy see-at-a-glance port reference. Traffic Separation Schemes are calculated into the tables and the distance to any port not included can easily be determined by making an approximation from the next closest port. Useful tables of major “turning points” around the world (such as Cape Finisterre, Cape Horn, and the Dover Straits), time zones, and time and speed conversion tables are also included. New for this edition is a useful Transatlantic distance table which has improved the linkage between the western north Atlantic and the Mediterranean, and between South America and Africa. Additionally, coverage of Chinese ports continues to be extended in light of their growth and importance. Both China's and India's busiest ports are featured.

Reeds Marine Distance Tables
are an invaluable reference for ship owners, operators, brokers, navigators, and superyacht skippers. Using this one reference, anyone can calculate the shortest or most economical distances between all the major ports in the world. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-marine-distance-tables-14th-edition-9781472921567/#sthash.JdhZBJqW.dpuf

The book covers the principal topics in applied mechanics for professional trainees studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the core syllabi in applied mechanics for undergraduates studying for BSc, BEng and MEng degrees in marine engineering, naval architecture and other marine technology related programmes.

The revised version takes into account the need of these students, recognising recent changes to the Merchant Navy syllabus and current pathways to a sea-going engineering career, including National diplomas, Higher National Diploma and degree courses.

Basic principles are dealt with, beginning at a fairly elemental stage, with this new edition applying the underlying principles to a shipping environment. Each chapter has fully worked examples interwoven into the text, with test examples set at the end of each chapter. Other revisions include examples reflecting modern machines and practice, current legislation and current syllabi. - See more at: http://www.bloomsbury.com/us/reeds-vol-2-applied-mechanics-for-marine-engineers-9781472910561/#sthash.VYyxXnAO.dpuf
