A NUMERICAL STUDY IN OPTIMUM TRACK SHIP ROUTING CLIMATOLOGY

A brief discussion of the background and history of optimum track ship routing is presented. The basic problems are formulated and the approach used in this investigation is described. The computing scheme is described graphically and textually. The results of this investigation are presented in two forms: (1) computer-generated histograms showing mean time saved by month for various trans-Atlantic routes; and (2) computer-drawn charts of various routes, by class (described), plotted against 5-year surface and 500-mb means.
