Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the 'Oceans in the Nuclear Age Project' answers three questions. First, what was the impact of the nuclear age on the ocean environment and what risks does that age pose in the future. Second, how did the law and policy of the oceans respond to the unique challenges of the nuclear age. Third, what is the legal agenda regarding the challenges posed both by the legacies of the past and the risks of the future. The law of the sea has moved to prohibit intentional introduction of radioactivity into the oceans through testing or dumping. The subject of the oceans in the nuclear age is full of dissonance. The oceans are the major part of the globe's surface and an essential integral part of the human environment.
