Abstract:

The economic advantages of large scale ocean carriers of oil and ores have developed considerable pressure for the development of a number of deep ports in the United States providing drafts in excess of 60 feet. This report is a study of selected foreign harbors and off-shore loading and unloading facilities where the experience was judged to be relevant to the U.S. situation. Specifically, the decision process leading to deep port development is examined, difficulties met and solved in construction and operation, and the relation between anticipations and experience are documented. Impacts on national economic policy, regional development objectives and environmental factors are discussed. Author
