Maritime boundary 2. Beyond the coastlines of many landmasses, the ocean floor declines very gently until the depth of about 660 feet. Beyond the 660-foot line the sea bottom usually drops off sharply toward the much deeper mid-oceanic basin. 3. Low island 3. Zone of seawater adjacent to a country's coast, held to be part of the national territory and treated as a segment of the sovereign state. 4. High island 4. Areas of the oceans away from land, beyond national jurisdiction, open and free for all to use. 5. Continental shelf 5. An international boundary that lies in the ocean. 6. Antarctic Treaty 6. The geographic study of oceans and seas. 7. Exclusive Economic Zone 7. Volcanic islands of the Pacific Realm that are high enough in elevation to wrest substantial moisture from the tropical ocean air. 8. High seas 8. International cooperative agreement on the use of Antarctic territory. 9. Marine geography 9. An international maritime boundary drawn where the width of a sea is less than 400 nautical miles. 10. Median lines 10. Low-lying coral islands of the Pacific Realm that cannot wrest sufficient moisture from the tropical ocean air to avoid chronic drought. 25
