STRAIGHT BASELINE LEGISLATION

The 1997 baseline legislation lists 236 coordinate points for the baselines of Nauru. It also lists tables of nautical-mile arc intersections for
the 12nm limit of the territorial sea, the 24nm limit of the contiguous zone, and the 200nm limit of the EEZ. This information is available on-
line at the UN Law of the Sea website; see Foreword for website information.
