About this book

This Atlas presents results obtained from three years of global data obtained from the GEOSAT satellite. Rather than merely presenting the data, an attempt has been made to provide some interpretation of the observed results.

This extremely detailed and carefully researched book provides perhaps the best overview of the heights and frequency of waves. Given modern satellite measurement as well as visual estimation, the conclusions are undoubtly more accurate than anything that has gone before...This book and CD lay out the odds in great detail. A very interesting and useful reference that should settle a number of arguments. Work Boat World
