It discusses the theory of ambulatory baselines and relevant state practice, and considers legal avenues possible for freezing otherwise ambulatory maritime limits. The book explains how bilateral maritime boundaries are established, emphasising the potential impact of coastal instability and vulnerable ecosystems on the delimitation process through bilateral negotiations or judicial settlement. Finally, it sets out how fundamental changes to the marine environment can justify termination or revision of settled maritime boundaries and related agreements.
