Maritime Claims Reference Manual

The U.S. Department of Defense maintains an online version of the Maritime Claims Reference Manual. Arranged by country, each entry provides geographical and legal details on maritime claims. For example, the manual provides the legal basis for a country’s territorial sea claims, fishing zones, and continental shelf designations.  This is useful for  researching marine resources, Law of the Sea, and international humanitarian law.
