Chapter 1 looks at how we use the oceans, and Chapters 2 and 3 consider the development of the Law of the Sea up until the present day (UNCLOS). The hydrocarbon-rich but ice-bound Arctic forms the case study in Chapter 4 where conflicts over sovereignty and rights of passage are considered alongside environmental problems. Finally, Chapter 5 discusses the equatorial Galapagos Islands, around which is a Marine Rresources Reserve. By looking at the islands' oceanographic setting, the Case study provides an insight into how they acquired their unusual flora and fauna, and explains why they are vulnerable to El Nino events.
