Item description for Legal And Scientific Aspects Of Continental Shelf Limits (Center for Oceans Law and Policy) (No. 8) by Myron H. Nordquist...

The legal and scientific aspects of continental shelf limits are of growing importance to those concerned with the international law of the sea. It is rare that the current thinking of both leading lawyers and scientists are brought together in one volume. Among the topics raised in this volume are: geomorphology and geology; ridge issues; Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf; shelf resources and current issues, such as the outer limit of the continental shelf in the Arctic Ocean, evaluating U.S. data holdings relevant to the definition of continental shelf limits, delimiting Chinas continental shelves and future directions of the International Seabed Authority. Lastly, the Under Secretary General for Legal Affairs, United Nations, H.E. Hans Corell, provides a strategic overview on the challenges in implementing international ocean governance. Another unique feature of the volume is that a CD is placed in the back cover containing visual materials not included in the printed text.

Reviews - What do customers think about Legal And Scientific Aspects Of Continental Shelf Limits (Center for Oceans Law and Policy) (No. 8)?

Well blended and easy to follow  Sep 12, 2004
I am in a geography master's program reading this book for a book review assignment. I have no background in laws regarding the sea, but this book is easy to follow so far. It has a nice blend of science and policy. I like that this book is written with a somewhat personal perspective and is not nearly as dull as it could be. Imagine being able to mouth-off about the Continental Shelf Limits at a party? Maybe not. There is also a chapter devoted to give a clear background of the continental shelf with definitions to ensure understanding, as well as a cd in the back of the book which contains the charts/PPT slides. To not have any business at all reading this book otherwise, it is fun leanring about this little known or spoken topic that has yet to be finalized by all countries. Oh, and I have looked high and low for the most recent books on the topic and it is the only one put out in 2004. As far as I know anyway.
