MAR TERRITORIAL, ZONA ECONÔMICA EXCLUSIVA OU PLATAFORMA CONTINENTAL?

J. M. de Souza

Abstract


The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) - also known as "The Law of the Sea" - defines the important concepts ofterritorial sea, exclusive economic zone, and continental shelf. Although these terms apply to distinct regions of the sea, there are many misunderstandings and confusion in using the correct name when referring to a particular portion of the ocean. We intend to give the reader some insights about these names and their correct use
