International profiles on marine scientific research : national maritime claims, MSR jurisdiction, and U.S. research clearance histories for the world's coastal states
MetadataShow full item record
The WHOI Sea Grant International Marine Science Cooperation Program has been tracking maritime claims and the evolving jurisdictions over marine scientific research for 146 coastal states covering the past 21 years. This monograph profiles each coastal state (through February 1992) for its Law of the Sea treaty status, size of marine area, claimed maritime zones, breadth and date of claims, maritime boundaries with other coastal states, jurisdiction over marine scientific research specifying national legislation and extent of jurisdiction, and the coastal state's history with U.S. research clearance requests from 1972-90. The coastal state profiles are followed by a series of tables which show the country data from various perspectives and several figures which illustrate the current situation of national maritime claims and regulation of oceanographic research.

Anderson, Donald M.; Ramsdell, John S. (Oceanography Society, 2005-06)More than a decade ago, the U.S. approach to research on harmful algal blooms (HABs) was uncoordinated and modest in scale. Research groups were few and their work was piecemeal and constrained by small budgets that ...
