Image copyright Reuters Across the world there has been a decline in piracy and sea robbery, but one precarious expanse of ocean waters in South East Asia is bucking that trend, as maritime defence expert Swee Lean Collin Koh explains.

Ship to shore: tracking the maritime motorways. From the clothes you are wearing, to the shoes on your feet, the mobile phone in your pocket, to the car you drive, or bike you ride, to the food on your plate – all of these items will, most likely, have travelled on a ship across the ocean using a ‘maritime motorway’ It is estimated that 97 per cent of all trade – the things we buy in shops – will have been transported in containers by ships at sea.

Ship to shore: tracking the maritime motorways

The container vessel, stacked high with uniformly-sized metal boxes, has become a symbol of our globalised world. This is a world of imports and exports, a world where moving things across huge distances keeps the price of daily commodities low as items are manufactured in one place, then packaged in another, before arriving on the shores where they will eventually be sold. In recent geographical literature, attention has turned to the world at sea – a space traditionally overlooked. Geography means ‘Earth-writing’ and geographers have taken the origins of the term very seriously. Dr. What are the main global flows of coal?

3 Charts Showing the World's Largest Megahub Airports – Skift. While the U.S. remains a stronghold for many of the world’s largest airport “megahubs” — or those with the most available connections — the amount of time travelers wait for connections at airports across the country is often lengthy and inconvenient.

Some 22 of the world’s top 50 megahubs (44 percent) are in the U.S. and nine are in the top 10. It’s no coincidence the U.S. is dominating the megahub charts given airline consolidation during the past few years, said OAG, an air travel intelligence company, which ranked the world’s megahubs for 2016.

People continue to come to the coasts to build some of the largest cities on the planet, with thriving economies, culture and communities. Ocean and coastal ecosystems provide us with resources and trade opportunities that greatly benefit human well-being. These benefits are often taken for granted as we fail to recognize their underlying value. In our narrow pursuit of progress through purely economic and social development we often fail to protect the health of our marine system that we depend upon.

Today, however, we increasingly realize the importance of healthy ecosystems for sustainable development that is reflected in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recently adopted by the United Nations. La Caspienne est-elle une mer ou un lac ? - Philippe Rekacewicz. Dès 1991, les accords de 1921 et 1940 sur le partage de la Caspienne entre les deux pays « riverains » d’alors, l’Iran et l’Union soviétique, ont dû être remis sur la table et renégociés avec les trois nouvelles républiques issues de l’implosion de l’URSS : Azerbaïdjan, Turkménistan et Kazakhstan.

Droits maritimes, un enjeu géopolitique, par Didier Cormorand (Le Monde diplomatique, juin 2016) Adoptée à Montego Bay (Jamaïque) en 1982, la convention des Nations unies sur le droit de la mer (CNUDM) a, comme son nom l’indique, défini le droit international pour la mer.

Elle a introduit le concept de zone économique exclusive (ZEE) ; reconnu le droit des États à étendre leur plateau continental bien au-delà de cette limite ; créé des institutions importantes, telles que l’Autorité internationale des fonds marins (AIFM) (1), pour gérer les ressources de la zone déclarée patrimoine commun de l’humanité (appelée « la Zone »), ainsi que la Commission des limites du plateau continental (CLPC) (2). À ce jour, 166 États ont ratifié cette convention. Parmi les autres, on trouve les pays privés de littoral, mais aussi les États-Unis (le gouvernement a signé, mais le Sénat n’a pas ratifié), Israël, le Venezuela et la Turquie.

Au 21ème siècle, la RATP est confrontée à plusieurs défis qui sont matérialisés notamment par l’ouverture à la concurrence des lignes de métro en 2039 et le développement de la jurisprudence relative aux responsabilités des entreprises de transports en commun. Pour faire face à un contexte en pleine évolution, l’entreprise a lancé, depuis le début des années 2000, le plus important programme de modernisation du réseau parisien depuis sa création : Métro 2030. Il repose sur trois axes : la modernisation de l’information voyageurs, des transports et des stations. Groupe fmr (flux, matrices, réseaux) Matthieu Totet sur Twitter : "#Gephi + #SNCF #opendata... The ocean at the heart of climate change Cousteau Society. The world’s oceans absorb heat For any given rise in temperature, the world’s oceans store ten times more heat that the atmosphere.

Taking into account the oceans’ considerable volume (300 times that of the atmosphere) the oceans trap more thermal energy that any other part of the planet. If the heat stored was released into the atmosphere, global temperatures would rise by 18 °C. The ocean acts as a thermal buffer. Waterford beneath the waves - Infomar.

How containerships reach mega sizes. 3.5K Flares3.5K Flares × Container ships were not always this big . They grew over time, let’s find out how.

Up until 1956, dock workers were the force responsible for packing international cargo in the holds of vessels, the cargo was also manually unloaded upon arrival at the designated port. In 1937, however, Malcolm McLean, the owner of a North Carolina trucking company, got fed up with the large amount of time it took to carry out the process as he constantly had to wait for workers to pack up his cargo consisting of cotton, that he had trucked up all the way to New York harbor, in order for it to be sent on its way to Istanbul. McLean came up with the idea to employ cranes in order to directly load truck trailers aboard the ship. During the course of 1960s, he was able to launch even larger container ships, and thus it was only natural that his Pan American company began to take over the shipping industry.

JF Ptak Science Books Post 2457 I think that if you squinted your eyes a little to deform your visual field and then looked at this map of the Earth's ocean currents that what you might see is...Mars. At least that's what I can see if I concentrate on it, or at least the Mars of 1880 or thereabouts, with its large and blotchy seemingly mobile and ambiguous forms skirting around the planet. "This map may be purchased at the blog's bookstore, here. That said this map does represent a high achievement, displaying the elements of the still young-ish science of oceanography (or at least in the form presented by Matthew F. Maury) and showing the movements of the ocean currents. This maps comes about a century after the first map to truly distinguish the Gulf Stream (the B.

Tourists visiting Europe are often advised to travel by train rather than plane or car. Trains are considered reliable, fast and relatively cheap.

But as a new research project shows, there are major differences within Europe: Whereas you can travel from London to Paris in less than four hours, traveling the same distance can last more than 22 hours in eastern Europe. Peter Kerpedjiev, a PhD student at the University of Vienna in Austria, gathered data that offers stunning insights into Europe's railway network. He selected 28 European cities and illustrated which surrounding cities or areas could be reached within a certain time. The following maps illustrate the most striking conclusions that can be drawn from Kerpedjiev's data. If you prefer fast rides, start somewhere close to Paris or London Europe's fastest train network is located in the west of the continent.
