Since it is a first attempt to introduce operational efforts into safety regulations, comprehensive discussions are necessary to realize practically acceptable ones. Therefore this study investigates actual navigation routes of container ships and pure car carriers in the trans-North Pacific Ocean in winter, because they are prone to suffer significant parametric roll which is one of stability failure modes. Firstly, interviews are made to shipmasters who have experiences to have operated the subject ships to identify major elements for route selection in the North Pacific Ocean. Secondly, sufficient number of actual navigation records is collected from Satellite AIS data to derive the weather criteria for the route selection in severe weather condition. Finally, shipmaster?s on-board decision-making criteria are discussed by analysing the ship tracking data and weather data.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.11.02.09}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Automatic Identification System (AIS), AIS Data, Voyage Route Selection, Route Planning, Satellite AIS Data, North Pacific Ocean, Weather Forecast, Decision-Making Criteria} }
