Abstract:

This project is an attempt to apply a systematic model of marine policy making to certain aspects of marine policy of particular concern to the United States Navy, i.e., the regulation of marine scientific research MSR and the control of navigation especially within 200-mile economic zones. The actual model employed has been developed over several years and consists of some 90 variables collected for most of the worlds nations. Some of the results have been disappointing in that the model, comprehensive as it is, does not account for much of the variance in the dependent variables. Some of this problem may have come from the thinness of the data. Originally, it was hoped to look for trends in MSR and navigation regulation, but data simply are not yet available. It is hoped that this project has shed some light on a complex and important subject. Perhaps now with the proliferation of 200-mile claims, it is possible to do a better job of predicting the amount of control over navigation and MSR within these zones.
