U.S. Law of the Sea Mapping
The United States is conducting multi-beam surveys of the US continental margins where a potential exists for a claim under United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) Article 76. The University of New Hampshire¡¯s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping-Joint Hydrographic Center is directing the surveys as part of its National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)-sponsored research programme. To date, two areas in the Bering Sea, two areas in the Arctic Ocean and a large portion of the US Atlantic continental margin have been mapped.
