Kennebec Captain haldol iv

It is possible that the captain may have focused too haldol iv narrowly on the position of the storm’s eye instead of on sandy’s total expanse (winds associated with the storm spanned more than 1,000 miles in diameter, and the area into which the bounty was heading was haldol iv already under tropical storm warnings, with conditions forecasted to worsen).Still, the captain seemed to believe that he could outrace the haldol iv storm.

On the navigable side,(the west side in the case of sandy) as the storm approaches, the winds and seas will be astern (important for a square rig sailing vessel) while also pushing the vessel out of the path of haldol iv the storm. Also the wind speeds are less because the winds are haldol iv the cyclonic so the total wind speed is the winds haldol iv minus the storm direction. On the dangerous semi-circle side (east side) the winds and sea tend to push the vessel into haldol iv the path of the storm and also the cyclonic winds haldol iv are added to the storm direction.

This is because when the bounty encountered sandy it was haldol iv transiting from a tropical cyclone(warm core) to an extratropical cyclone (cold core). The meteorology is complex but the take-away for the mariner is that the wind field will haldol iv expand and the field will no longer have the same haldol iv characteristics.

The third error relates to route monitoring, a specific task of the officer of the watch (OOW). The bridge team was composed of a senior OOW, a junior OOW, a deck cadet, and a seaman with either lookout or helmsman functions. The SOOW was in charge of the conduct of navigation, with regards to conning orders, collision avoidance and route monitoring on the INS. The JOOW was assisting him fixing the ship’s position on paper charts, which has to be considered with priority over the INS haldol iv route monitoring. The JOOW could not correctly monitor the approach to giglio haldol iv island, firstly because there were no routes drawn on larger scale haldol iv charts than 1:100.000, and secondly because she left the chart table to assist haldol iv the helmsman when the captain took the command of navigation

The fourth error also relates to route monitoring. In contrast to the third error, this involved the INS, to be officially used only as an aid to navigation. The equipment was operated by the SOOW, who used the radar distances and the electronic chart overlay haldol iv to monitor the approach to the island. The error consisted in assessing the distance from the furthermost haldol iv radar echo of le scole rocks, and not from the limit of the no-go area, that is the 10 meters bathymetric line.

The fifth error is in the area of bridge resource haldol iv management (BRM), and it can be attributed to the captain, as team leader. Indeed the effectiveness of BRM practices – essentially aiming at optimizing team work – depends heavily on the leadership skills of the captain. That night, since the captain arrived on the bridge at about 5 haldol iv miles from giglio island, a series of erroneous BRM practices can be extracted from haldol iv the depositions. These shortfalls are of a non-technical nature, involving mainly lack of team briefing, and lack of formal handover. In short, the captain did not share intentions and expected outcomes of haldol iv the decisions made, both before and during the manoeuvre.

A good defense in sports reduces the number of shots haldol iv on goal rather then depending upon the goalie to make haldol iv saves. Careful voyage planning and good bridge team management likewise reduces haldol iv the number of "saves", situations which in which the crew has little room for haldol iv error.

One of the concepts in the book managing the unexpected haldol iv is "weak signals of failure". There is a lot to this, in operations small things are always going wrong, this is the "unexpected" in the title. Risk management is not just about reducing or avoiding risk haldol iv but also having a plan for coping when things go haldol iv wrong.

In the BP oil disaster in the gulf of mexico haldol iv two years ago, all of these elements came into play, leading to the death of eleven men and the spillage haldol iv of five million barrels of oil over three months. According to the official investigation, there had been early signs that the drill pipe was haldol iv having problems and was improperly designed, but the companies involved did nothing. Then, on the evening of april 20, 2010, during a routine test of the well, the rig crew detected a serious abnormality in the pressure haldol iv in the drill pipe. They watched it and took more measurements, which revealed a number of other abnormalities that signal a haldol iv “kick”—an undetected pressure buildup . But it was two hours before they recognized the seriousness haldol iv of the situation—two hours without a plan of action.

Then, when they did recognize the trouble, they sent the flow through a piece of equipment that haldol iv can’t handle such pressures. The kick escalated to a blowout, and the mud-gas mix exploded. At that point, emergency crews went into action. But for twelve minutes, no one sounded a general alarm to abandon the rig, leading directly to the loss of eleven lives in a haldol iv second explosion.

Aboard ship it is important to monitor the accuracy of haldol iv the forecasts, we don’t dispose of the weather until the voyage is completed haldol iv without incident. If you check the 96hr, the 48 hr and the 24 hr forecasts against the haldol iv actual weather you can develop a sense of how accurate haldol iv they are.

My experience is that the NWS (national weather service) forecasts and some other agencies are much better then many haldol iv people believe but also it is easy to fall into haldol iv the trap of accepting them uncritically out of habit. Much like monitoring the position of the ship to ensure haldol iv it stays in safe water you should check from time haldol iv to time to ensure the forecast is "on track". How often you check depends upon the situation.

Most mariners are aware that the longer the range the haldol iv forecast is the less accurate it is. The 24 hr forecast can be relied upon more then haldol iv the 48 hr and so on. Beyond that my rule of thumb regarding the trustworthiness of haldol iv the forecast is it depends on the issuing agency and haldol iv how complex the weather situation is. Another important considerations is how much is at stake if haldol iv the forecast is inaccurate.

I have higher trust in forecasts from the united states, japan and europe then some other places. I’ve had the most experience in those areas and have haldol iv had many opportunities to verify the forecasts. I have more trust in simple situations then complex ones, for example if there are lots of low pressure areas haldol iv about I am more wary then the simpler case of haldol iv a single big high pressure system.

An important question is how much is at stake? If you lose the bet will it result in a haldol iv delay in operations or are you risking the safety of haldol iv ship and crew? In cases where you have lots of sea room it haldol iv may matter little if the forecast is inaccurate as you haldol iv can adjust your track as needed. On the other hand if you are coastwise or in haldol iv port your options are likely far fewer. You need to think what is the worse case scenario haldol iv and is a plan B practical?

The bottom line is trust but verify – make sure you monitor the weather on a continuous basis, keep the latest forecast posted – the watch mates should know when the next forecast is haldol iv due in. Keep the old forecasts and compare them to the actual haldol iv weather.

This usage is reflected in the roots. According to wordnik: ", monsoon comes from the arabic word " mawsim" which means season. Obsolete dutch monssoen, from portuguese monção, from arabic mawsim, season, from wasama, to mark; see wsm in semitic roots."

Essentially monsoons are a large scale, continental version of sea and land breezes which occur on haldol iv the coast. The driving force behind both monsoons and sea breezes is haldol iv the different rates at which sea and land heat and haldol iv cool. Land heats and cools at a faster rate then the haldol iv sea. Warm air rises and is replaced by cooler air. Thus the daily (in the case of sea breezes) and seasonal (in the case of monsoons) reversals of wind direction.

The summer monsoon famously brings moisture from the sea to haldol iv the indian sub-continent which results in (sometimes heavy) rain. This accounts for fact that the term monsoon is often haldol iv used to refer to the rainy season only (or sometime just to refer to heavy rain).

In practical terms the monsoons influence the weather over a haldol iv very large area. On a voyage from the suez canal to japan, the effects of the SW monsoon are first felt in haldol iv the southern red sea but more dramatically upon leaving the haldol iv gulf of aden and entering the arabian sea. There, exposed to long fetch of the indian ocean, the SW monsoon winds sometimes result in a heavy swell. Entering the straits of malacca the weather is dominated by haldol iv local conditions but after leaving singapore straits and proceeding northward haldol iv in the south china sea the monsoon reasserts itself.
