The World Maritime University

Industry and governments around the world are engaged in the international effort to battle climate change, greenhouse gas emissions, air pollutants, sea-level rise and weather-pattern changes. At the same time, there is a constant pressure towards cost-efficiency and market competitiveness.

Regular compass corrections are important

A compass has to be calibrated regularly, because the magnetic field of our Earth, on which the compass is oriented, constantly changes slightly and deviates from place to place. The corrections are especially important for captains and pilots in high latitudes. Elsewhere it does not
