Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter discusses in more detail the impetus and reasons for the study of how the nuclear age has affected the oceans and the legal regime of the oceans. The impetus for this study comes from three circumstances: the significance of the question presented; our assessment that knowledge concerning the impact of nuclear age on the oceans and its legal regime is scattered among pockets of expertise; and the fact that to our knowledge there has been no previous attempt to consider the impact of the nuclear age on the oceans and the legal regime that governs those oceans. Three reasons occur for the surprising absence of research on the broad question of the oceans in the nuclear age, although it must be said these explanations only beget further questions in turn.

Keywords: legal regime; nuclear age; oceans
