Издание на английском языке
When you embark on a research vessel, you enter a world very different from the shore-side laboratory or classroom. Many of the words commonly used ashore are not used on-board, and “old salts” will judge your “savvy” accordingly. Learning the language of going to sea is not only important for proper communication, but also for your safety and well-being. This handbook is written to acquaint the landlubber with ships, their traditions, construction, and the work done for you by the officers and crew. It is not meant as a treatise in seamanship, but rather to prepare you for a successful and safe research cruise. It is a “handbook,” so toss it into your seabag along with foul-weather gear, closed-toed shoes, sunscreen, work clothes, and reading materials. Be observant! Why did the captain or chief marine engineer do this or that? What do those flags mean? Where is your fire and emergency muster station? Lifeboat station? Can you tie a few essential knots, such as a bowline? How do you pronounce “bowline?” Writing this handbook is the output of teaching oceanographers, ocean engineers, marine meteorologists, and other students at Florida Institute of Technology, and it is for them and their fellow future shipmates from all marine science institutes that this is intended. Bon Voyage!
