**Nautical Studies**

I understand it is a popular misconception that a magnetic compass points to the magnetic north pole. In fact a magnetic compass aligns itself with the magnetic lines of force in its own location. Here in the UK these lines of force seem to coincide very closely with the ...

**Earth physics I think**

Keplerian motion/Analemma Does the earth actually alter speed or is it a result of the earth being closer to the sun at some points in its eliptical orbit or BOTH? Additionally does anyone know where the value of the earth/sun analemma can be found. I read it is in a nautical ...

Further to my post yesterday re wave speed. If a fast 25Kn 10m power boat had the choice of making a passage against the wind & waves (head sea) or with the wind & waves following (following sea). Assuming 15Kn wind in open sea conditions & no tide the skipper would choose to ...
