This document is addressed to those who plan naval operations. Its purpose is to promote and facilitate the introduction of climatological considerations into that planning process. It provides aid to the planner in identifying, selecting, and obtaining appropriate climatological data sources, and guidance in the use of the data thus obtained. The use of this manual should not discourage or supplant communication between operational planners and Naval Weather Service activities or environmental staff personnel these remain the primary sources of timely forecasts and expert consultation. Rather, it should aid such communication by providing both information and stimulation. The manual identifies and describes a large number of reference publications in aggregate they would occupy a small library. The manuals intent is to acquaint the planner with these publications and to enable him to select those he may require. It may also aid him in seeking temporary use of some publications, for most of them are held by Naval Weather Service activities and major operational commands. Author
