Abstract

From May 11 to 14, 1984, 36 experts in arms control, and international and maritime affairs, gathered in Norrtälje, Sweden, to attend a symposium on matters of naval arms control organized jointly by the Myrdal Foundation and the International Ocean Institute. Entitled "Symposium on the Denuclearization of the Oceans and Pacem in Maribus XIII," the discussions focused on the large number of nuclear warheads and nuclear-powered vessels now deployed in the world's oceans and seas, and also considered wider issues of the prospects for limitations on naval arms and naval activities in the light of the new Law of the Sea. Some 70% of the world's surface is covered by oceans and seas. The Pacific Ocean alone covers 34% of the globe, more than all the land masses of the earth put together. About 7 persons in every 10 of the world's population live within 200 miles of a coast; in the northern hemisphere, where most naval activities take place, some three-fifths of the area is covered by water. Of the world's 28,000 sea-going ships, about 1,200 are warships of frigate-size and above. About 10,100 nuclear warheads, almost one-third of the world's nuclear weapons, are at present earmarked
