    • Abstract:
      The pollution of the marine environment has many forms, Section 5 on the prevention, reduction and control of sea pollution of the Convention of 1982 on the law of the sea, identifies six sources of pollution: pollution from land-based sources, pollution from seabed activities subject to national jurisdiction, pollution from activities in the International Area, pollution by dumping, pollution from ships and pollution from or through the atmosphere. The planetary ocean fulfils numerous functions directly affecting human life (and of the whole planet), such as: food procurement, maintaining the balances essential for planetary life, transportation mean connecting different parts of the globe. Each time the human activity or by natural reasons these functions are disturbed, the resources that man can obtain are endangered, defending the premises of a closer competition between the states of the world for them. In the presence of these circumstances, the conflicts between states may emerge relatively easy thus exponentially increasing the role of universal and regional regulations, clear and coordinated.
