The TransNav 2013 Symposium held at the Gdynia Maritime University, Poland in June 2013 has brought together a wide range of participants from all over the world. The program has offered a variety of contributions, allowing to look at many aspects of the navigational safety from various different points of view. Topics presented and discussed at the Symposium were: navigation, safety at sea, sea transportation, education of navigators and simulator-based training, sea traffic engineering, ship's manoeuvrability, integrated systems, electronic charts systems, satellite, radio-navigation and anti-collision systems and many others. This book is part of a series of four volumes and provides an overview of advances in Marine Navigation and is addressed to scientists and professionals involved in research and development of navigation, safety of navigation and sea transportation.

Human Factors and Ergonomics have made a considerable contribution to the research, design, development, operation and analysis of transportation systems which includes road and rail vehicles and their complementary infrastructure, aviation and maritime transportation. This book presents recent advances in the Human Factors aspects of Transportation. These advances include accident analysis, automation of vehicles, comfort, distraction of drivers (understanding of distraction and how to avoid it), environmental concerns, in-vehicle systems design, intelligent transport systems, methodological developments, new systems and technology, observational and case studies, safety, situation awareness, skill development and training, warnings and workload. This book brings together the most recent human factors work in the transportation domain, including empirical research, human performance and other types of modeling, analysis, and development. The issues facing engineers, scientists, and other practitioners of human factors in transportation research are becoming more challenging and more critical. The common theme across these sections is that they deal with the intersection of the human and the system. Moreover, many of the chapter topics cross section boundaries, for instance by focusing on function allocation in NextGen or on the safety benefits of a tower controller tool. This is in keeping with the systemic nature of the problems facing human factors experts in rail and road, aviation and maritime research– it is becoming increasingly important to view problems not as isolated issues that can be extracted from the system environment, but as embedded issues that can only be understood as a part of an overall system.

John Harrison, ein schottischer Uhrmacher, setzte sich ein ehrgeiziges und unmöglich erscheinendes Ziel: eine Methode zu ersinnen, die es Seeleuten ermöglicht, den genauen Längengrad ihrer Position auf See zu bestimmen. Über vierzig Jahre arbeitete Harrison wie besessen an der Herstellung eines perfekten Chronometers und kam schließlich — trotz Missgunst und zahlreicher Anfeindungen — zum Erfolg. Dava Sobels in luzider Prosa erzählte Geschichte dieser wissenschaftlichen Gralssuche wurde ein überwältigender internationaler Erfolg.

In the last few years, the quantity of books and papers on the political, economic and legal problems of the exploration and use of the sea and marine resources has considerably increased. But the status and activities of intern a tional organizations related to maritime shipping, fisheries, scientific research in the World Ocean and the protection of the marine environment have not yet, as a whole, been represented in the scientific and reference literature. It would be fair, though, to mention that some general information on marine international organizations may be found in the Yearbook of International Organizations, Brussels, 1979; in Annotated Acronyms and Abbreviations of Marine Science Related International Organizations, U. S. Department of Commerce, 1976; and in the UN Annotated Directory ofIntergovernmental Organizations Concerned with Ocean Affairs, 1976. Voluminous informa tion on organizations engaged in problems of the exploration and use ofthe sea is given in International Marine Organizations by the well-known Polish scientists Lopuski and Symonides, 1978. Meanwhile the increasing volume of practical work related to the participa tion of governmental and scientific bodies as well as individual scientists and specialists in these organizations, the necessity of long-term planning in this field, and the perspectives of the development of these organizations, make necessary a special publication depicting the structure and many-sided activi ties of such international bodies. This book is the first one in which the most complete information on the main marine international organizations is presented.

Das Wörterbuch Deutsch als Fremdsprache richtet sich an alle, die Deutsch als Fremdsprache lernen und lehren. Nichtmuttersprachler haben andere Nachschlagebedürfnisse als Muttersprachler: das Wörterbuch Deutsch als Fremdsprache wurde speziell für die Bedürfnisse von Nichtmuttersprachlern erarbeitet. Die alltägliche Kommunikation kann mit etwa 15.000 bis 20.000 Wörtern bestritten werden, dementsprechend enthält das Wörterbuch Deutsch als Fremdsprache ca. 19.000 Stichwörter. Die Lernenden erhalten so Informationen über den Teil des Wortschatzes, den sie wirklich brauchen. Und dieser Wortschatz wird gründlich nach den neuesten sprachwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen analysiert: Die "kleinen" Wörter, die eine so große Rolle bei der Beherrschung einer Fremdsprache spielen und die so schwer zu erlernen sind, bekommen großen Raum: Konjunktionen, Präpositionen, Modal- und Gradpartikel werden ausführlich berücksichtigt. Zu jedem Stichwort wird die korrekte Aussprache angegeben. Das Wörterbuch verdeutlicht die Systembeziehungen im Wortschatz. Dadurch kann der Benutzer beim Nachschlagen ständig seinen Wortschatz erweitern: Durch die Angabe der Synonyme und Antonyme wird der Benutzer vom einzelnen Stichwort zu verwandten lexikalischen Einheiten geführt. Jedes Stichwort wird - soweit möglich - einer Wortfamilie zugeordnet. Die Stichwörter werden ausführlich erläutert: viele Beispielsätze und Anwendungsbeispiele zeigen das Wort und die Wortbedeutungen in den Zusammenhängen, in denen sie verwendet werden. Bei den Worterklärungen werden nur die Wörter verwendet, die im Wörterbuch selbst vorkommen. Es wird erläutert, wie man verschiedene Wörter miteinander kombinieren kann. Die grammatischen Normen werden für jedes Stichwort angegeben. Jedes Stichwort, jede Bedeutung wird mit einem Stilmerkmal gekennzeichnet. Das Wörterbuch enthält zahlreiche idiomatische und kommunikative Gebrauchswendungen sowie Funktionsverbgefüge und erklärt sie. Merke-Kommentare zu den Wörterbuchartikeln weisen auf bestimmte Besonderheiten und Regeln hin. 500 Abbildungen veranschaulichen die Erklärungen. Ein grammatisches Tafelwerk im Anhang des Wörterbuchs führt die Benutzerinnen und Benutzer zu den Regeln. Über 80 Wortfelder zu den unterschiedlichsten Bereichen erweitern den Wortschatz. Und selbstverständlich folgt das Wörterbuch Deutsch als Fremdsprache den Regeln der neuen deutschen Rechtschreibung.
