ABSTRACT

Coast Guard Journal of Safety at Sea: Proceedings of the Marine Safety Council [Volume 56, Number 4]   [open pdf - 5MB]

This edition of the Coast Guard Journal of Safety at Sea, Proceedings of the Marine Safety Council is informally titled "Preparing our Waterways for the 21st Century". From the foreword by Rear Admiral Robert C. North, Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety & Environmental Protection: "'Waterways management' is not new to the Coast Guard. What is new is a better understanding-both inside and outside the service-of the strategic importance of the MTS [Marine Transportation System] and the value of Coast Guard waterways management efforts in advancing our national interests. This issue of Proceedings includes an historic overview of Coast Guard waterways management as well as a look to the future for the waterways management business line. Several other articles provide a snapshot of what is happening in the vessel traffic management arena; an overview of waterways management research and development; and a sampling of specific waterways management initiatives, including how several of our field offices and NOAA [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] are working to ensure the safety of our waterways. These articles represent just a few of the many waterways management issues that the Coast Guard is involved in to ensure that our waterways do not become the weak link in our national transportation system."
