  The Law of the Sea
The outer limit of the territorial sea is the line every point of which is at a distance from the nearest point of the baseline equal to the breadth of the territorial sea.
In the case of islands situated on atolls or of islands having fringing reefs, the baseline for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea is the seaward low-water line of the reef, as shown by the appropriate symbol on charts officially recognized by the coastal State.
Where a low-tide elevation is situated wholly or partly at a distance not exceeding the breadth of the territorial sea from the mainland or an island, the low-water line on that elevation may be used as the baseline for measuring the breadth of the territorial sea.

The dugong is a shy, grass-eating mammal that is a distant relative of the Florida manatee.
In Okinawan folklore, according to documents filed with the court, the dugong is considered the ancestor of human beings, celebrated in songs still sung by shamans and residents of the bay the creature inhabits, and worshiped at shrines as a deity responsible for successful fishing trips as well as disastrous tsunamis.
She also rejected the Justice Department's argument that the law could not be applied because the new base is to be built by the Japanese government.

 The Law of the Sea Treaty
The Law of the Sea Treaty ("Treaty") was conceived in 1982 by the United Nations (U.N.) as a method for governing activities on, over, and beneath the ocean's surface.
Under the Treaty, a 12-mile territorial sea limit and a 200-mile exclusive economic zone (EEZ) are established.
The Treaty still requires adherence to policies that regulate deep-sea mining, as well as forcing participants to adopt laws and regulations to control and prevent marine pollution.

Concerned about America's unilateralistimage abroad, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has declared that the president wants to see the controversial Law of the Sea Treaty "pass as soon as possible." Americans would be better off if the administration allowed the treaty to sink beneath the waves, where it belongs.
For instance, the U.N. Division for Ocean Affairs and the Law of the Sea explained that the treaty "is not, however, a static instrument, but rather a dynamic and evolving body of law that must be vigorously safeguarded and its implementation aggressively advanced." Creative international jurists could wreak enormous havoc.
