Abstract:

A search of the literature reveals that there are differences within the US Government Departments on the position of the regulations necessary for the military and economic uses of the worlds oceans. Also noted is the struggle within the United Nations in regard to the statutory limits that will meet the needs of the majority of the worlds nations. The evolution of the territorial sea and the economic zone are examined in regard to the developed and developing countries. The control and wise use of the resources of the seabed are noted as a concern of the developing nations. Pollution and scientific research of the worlds oceans are briefly discussed. With the increased width of the territorial sea many of the worlds straits must be considered as to their free passage both for over-flight by aircraft and the passage of military vessels. The US must develop a unified policy within the various departments of its government. If the UN does not provide the positive leadership, the US must negotiate bilateral agreements with the nations that are within our strategic security limits of the worlds oceans. Author
