1991, 6 (1):
The deepwater coastline resources in Northern Zhejiang are situated in the central section Of the- coastline of China. It includes two parts: One is called the Ningbo-Zhoushan coastline, which is in Ningbo Municipality and Zhoushan Archipelago. The other is called the Zhapu-Dushan coastline, which is in Jiaxing Municipality.The length of the Ningbo-Zhoushan coastline is 88 km in all. The coastline surrounds an extensive sea area but leaves several deep-water sea-lanes- The sea area possesses many superior points such as deepwater, calm sea, little deposit, no freeze, and so on. In the coastal areas of China, there are few other 'deepwater coastlines as good as the Ningbo-Zhoushan coastline. Although the Zhapu-Dushan coastline has disadvantages, it is 22 km long and near Shanghai. Moreover, its sea-lanes are superior to those of the Yangtze River Mouth.The article deals with the urgency, goal, and steps of exploitation of the deepwater coastline resources, based on the analyses of the present situation and trend of international and internal economy, trade, harbour, and sea transportation.Finally, it puts forward several proposals on rational exploitation of the deepwater coastline.
