ABSTRACT
Half of the world's coastal States are in the process of delineating continental-shelf limits seawards of their 200- nautical-mile exclusive economic zones. This Article outlines the complex criteria and process involved in the definition of outer-continental-shelf limits, highlights associated uncertainties and ambiguities, and points to progress and remaining obstacles to the finalization of such limits. Key potential marine resource opportunities that may arise within seabed areas seaward of the 200-nautical-mile limit are noted and challenges to securing rights over these resources are explored.
