The Real Map of Ireland

The Real Map of Ireland image

The Real Map of Ireland shows Ireland's current designated Irish Continental Shelf (November 2009), which is one of the largest seabed territories in Europe. The continental shelf is the extension of a state's territorial waters where the natural prolongation of its land territory to the outer edge of the continental margin is beyond 200 nautical miles from the coastline baseline. The coastal state exercises sovereign rights over the continental shelf for the purpose of exploring it and exploiting its natural resources, subject to provisions of Part VI of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.  

The Real Map of Ireland outlines the vast marine environment that surrounds Ireland in terms of marine renewable energy resource potential.
