The unity of semilandlocked seas.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Investigates whether two landlocked sea regions, the Mediterranean and the Carribean, have regional properties which make them unique, and whether they should be described and classified as homogeneous regions, functional regions or both. Concludes that the functional definition of a region is more relevant than a definition based on homogeneity, and that the impact of an 'intrusive' system (the EEC, USA etc) is influential on the functional relationships within regions. -M.Barrett
