Maritime Environmental Security

This article analyzes environmental security in the sphere of sea navigation, safety of navigation and tourism on the Adriatic Sea, bearing in mind that keeping marine environment healthy is one of fundamental factors of today’s national and international security. Likewise, secure underwater environment strengthens public security from hazards deriving from seafloor caused by human negligence and environmental degradation – by disposing and submerging dangerous goods in particular. The article focuses on the underwater environment mapping by using bathymetric charts where “dangerous underwater objects” would be recorded. Furthermore, it concentrates on the latest underwater technology (Autonomous Underwater Vehicles) able to detect and digitally record the object’s position, georeferencing it in coordinates. At the same time, the article aims at raising the awareness of marine environment protection and conservation, as well as the realization of the UN Environment Program.
