The Law of the Sea: Training Manual for Delineation of the Outer Limits of the Continental Shelf Beyond 200 Nautical Miles and for Preparation of Submissions to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (Google eBook)
United Nations Publications, 2006 - Law - 530 pages
The legal regime established by the United Nations Law of the Sea Convention for the delineation of the outer limits of the extended continental shelf combines both legal and scientific concepts, rendering its interpretation challenging to both legal practitioners with no scientific background, and marine scientists with no legal training. For this reason, the present Manual covers, to the extent possible, all relevant legal, scientific, logistical and procedural aspects of the delineation of the outer limits of the extended continental shelf in its nine modules. Publishing Agency: United Nations (UN).

Page 2-18 - Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph 5, on submarine ridges, the outer limit of the continental shelf shall not exceed 350 nautical miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured. This paragraph does not apply to submarine elevations that are natural components of the continental margin, such as its plateaux, rises, caps, banks and spurs.
