Article 76 Booklet


GNS has published a booklet, jointly with NIWA, on the New Zealand Continental Shelf Project.

This document, written by members of the New Zealand Continental Shelf Project Team, discusses various aspects of the terms and formulae of article 76 of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, and the challenges that have arisen in applying them to the real-world submarine morphology and geology of the Southwest Pacific.

It is likely to be of interest to other countries that are preparing a submission to define the outer limits of their continental shelf. The document includes a discussion of the data used by the project, and the organisation of the final report that will be used as the basis for New Zealandís submission to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf.
