The “Atlas of Pilot Charts” is an essential source of information for those involved in diving and ROV operations to evaluate the more favorable periods and those to avoid in a particular area. It consists of five books that depict the prevailing weather patterns, including wind directions and speeds, wave heights, ocean currents, visibility, barometric pressures, sea surface temperatures, percentage possibilities for winds of Force 8 or greater, and ice limits to be found in the areas covered for each month of the year.
