Mariner's Guide to Marine Weather Services: Coastal, Offshore and High Seas

Few people are affected more by weather than the mariner. An unexpected change in winds, seas, or visibility can reduce the efficiency of marine operations and threaten the safety of a vessel and its crew. The National Weather Service (NWS), a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, provides marine weather warnings and forecasts to serve all mariners who use the waters for livelihood or recreation. This pamphlet describes marine weather services available from the NWS and other agencies.
