Abstract : This publication is one of a series containing statistics on the waterborne commerce of the United States during the calendar year 1987. Four of these publications present detailed data on the movements of commodities and vessels at the ports and harbors and on the waterways and canals of the United States, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands, and the fifth contains summary data of the country as a whole. The numbers of the publications and the areas covered are: Atlantic Coast; Gulf Coast, Mississippi River System, and Antilles; Great Lakes; Pacific Coast, Alaska, and Hawaii; and Waterborne Commerce of the United States (National Summaries). Both the foreign and domestic commerce moved on United States waters are included. Data on the foreign commerce were supplied to the Corps of Engineers by the Bureau of the Census; data for the compilation of the domestic statistics were collected by the several offices of the Corps of Engineers, Department of Army, in compliance with various acts of Congress. The principal provision governing the collection of these data is included in the River and Harbor Act of September 22, 1922; as amended by Section 919 of the 1986 Water Resources Development Act.
