About the Authors
  • Describing the emerging and unresolved issues related to the oceans and the marine environment, this book presents the developments made in marine science and policy since the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), and implications for the sustainable management of ocean areas and resources. This comprehensive volume also provides a number of scientific, policy, and legal tools to address such issues, and to ensure better science-based management of the oceans. Topics covered include the impacts of human-induced climate change on the oceans, the marine genetic resources debate, the current legal framework for the oceans, and a comparative study of the legal issues associated with outer space. Including practical examples and worldwide case studies, this book is a valuable resource for policy makers, students and academics, in marine science and policy, ocean affairs, and the law of the sea.

    • Provides an accessible overview of scientific, legal and policy issues in marine environments, with a focus on areas beyond national jurisdiction
    • Explores both the challenges and opportunities for the sustainable management of ocean areas and resources, providing tools and recommendations for policy makers
    • A comprehensive reference work, with contributions from leading international experts in law and ocean science
