Mariner's Guide for Hurricane Awareness in the North Atlantic Basin

This guide will hopefully air the Mariner in understanding the complex structure and behavior of tropical cyclones in the North Atlantic Ocean. Once armed with this knowledge, and the information on where to acquire forecasts and guidance for current tropical cyclones, the mariner can be prepared to weather the storm or better yet, avoid these catastrophic events altogether. Finally, this guide will discuss some ship routing and hurricane avoidance options with the intention of highlighting critical thought processes, risk analyses and required actions that should be considered in order to remain safe and secure during the threat of a tropical cyclone at sea or in port.
