Introduction. - The Continental Shelf Prior to UNCLOS III. - The Continental Shelf - its Definition and Limits under Article 76 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. - The Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.
Establishment of the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf Beyond 200 Nautical Miles - the Legal, Scientific and Technical Interface. - The Process of Establishing the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf. - Prospects for Settlement of Disputes Involving the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf beyond 200 Nautical Miles. - The Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf: Legal Aspects of their Establishment.
The book provides an in-depth study of the legal aspects concerning the limits of the outer continental shelf. It addresses the interpretation and application of the respective rules and formulas. The complexity of interpreting and applying the respective rules stems from the fact that many terms in Article 76 of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea are not defined and require the combined application of law and science.
