Cornell’s Ocean Atlas

Third edition: Pilot charts of all the world's oceans

12 years have passed since the publication of the first edition of Cornell’s Ocean Atlas. And Jimmy Cornell is convinced that, during this period, the effects of global warming have intensified dramatically, affecting weather patterns the world over. This is why the charts presented in the third edition (only just published!) are based on fully up-to-date meteorological information.

The author is keen to highlight climate changes that are likely to have an impact on ocean passage-making. One of the most notable of these is the gradual decrease in the regularity and reliability of the trade winds, as many boaters on frequently-sailed ocean routes can attest. But for Jimmy, the most significant and visible disruption has been the increase in the intensity and extent of tropical cyclones, both in terms of the length of the cyclone or hurricane seasons and the areas affected. This phenomenon obviously has a considerable impact on planning and safety for cruising in general. The extent of the ocean areas affected by tropical storms is therefore highlighted on the monthly maps in this third edition.

In these times of climatic uncertainty, the safety factor in passage planning is becoming ever more significant than in the past, and this atlas will help sailors to plan a safe voyage.
