Thermometrical navigation.

Being a series of experiments and observations, tending to prove, that by ascertaining the relative heat of the sea-water from time to time, the passage of a ship through the Gulph Stream, and from deep water into soundings, may be discovered in time to avoid danger, although (owing to tempestuous weather,) it may be impossible to heave the lead or observe the heavenly bodies.

In Williams published a book entitled Thermometrical Navigation, in which he urged ship masters when approaching the North American coast to have available two thermometers, one attached to a shaded area on deck to measure air temperature and one trailed in the sea behind the vessel for water temperature.
