Discusses the questions that must be answered in order to complete a conceptual design of a multipurpose offshore industrial-port island. What industries would be suitable for island location? Where, based on market demand, could an island be built? How should the industries be arranged on the island, what raw materials would be required, and what wastes would be produced? How could such an island be built? What would be the environmental effects of construction and operation? What legal-jurisdictional arrangements are available or need to be developed?
