Ice Navigation gives a thorough introduction and description of most aspects related to the operation of ships in polar and ice-covered waters. The subjects covered include geography, technology, environment, routing, and regulations. This will be an invaluable book for those operating ships - onboard and ashore - as well as those involved in planning maritime operations in remote and ice-infested regions. Ice Navigation covers the subject matter in the IMO Guidelines for Ships Operating in Polar Waters (Resolution A.1024 (26) adopted on December 2, 2009), as well as the issues described in the Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping Convention.
