The Glossary of Maritime Technology with over 3,500 definitions is available at the touch of a button. Even those with many years of experience will sometimes come across an unfamiliar phrase or need an exact definition of a technical term. For this reason, the Institute of Marine Engineers published a fully updated and revised edition, which is also available on the web. The glossary is the essential guide to modern maritime terms and combines the functions of a dictionary, textbook and micro-encyclopedia.
The updated edition reflects developments within the marine industry, and includes specialist terms relating to shipping management, nautical activities, offshore exploration, naval architecture, marine electrical and marine petroleum technology, and the Royal Navy.
You can search for a specific term, or search the entire text of all 3500 entries. Simply type the word or phrase you are interested in, and the full definition will be displayed instantly. Readers are invited to email IMarE with suggestions for definitions, which are not included. The Glossary is still available in print format Price £12.50 (members £10.00) - contact Lorraine Jordan, Publications Sales Administrator Email
