Abstract : The purpose of the essay is to consider jurisdictional problems of the seabed and ocean floor beyond traditional limits of national concern. Ocean technology has suddenly triggered strong concern among nations to ensure themselves a share in the new-found source of natural wealth of the sea-bottom. Based on United Nations' progress with a treaty to outlaw nuclear weapons on the seabed, the essay concludes that this arms prohibition with its associated boundary agreement should pioneer the international task of assuring multiple use of the oceans, in line with a U.S.-proposed plan.
