Full Description:

Naval Science 2, 3rd Edition is the new edition of a textbook that has long been a staple work for the NJROTC program. It provides a survey of early maritime history as well as the history of the U.S. Navy. In addition, this textbook covers the key leadership precepts and nautical sciences required by second-year students in the Navy high school NJROTC program. Subjects covered include maritime geography, oceanography, meteorology, astronomy, and physical science, including timely topics such as global warming, green energy, and computer science. The highly illustrated text provides the fundamental background necessary for follow-on studies in all these areas at either the senior high school or college level.

Cdr. Richard Hobbs, USNR (Ret.) has been involved with the Navy’s NJROTC program for more than thirty years as a writer or editor of many of its instructional textbooks and other materials. A 1966 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and twenty-year veteran high school science teacher, Commander Hobbs has also written the widely acclaimed Marine Navigation. He resides in Maryland and in Florida.
