The report presents issues for consideration in the planning and design of offshore artificial complexes. It reviews issues dealing with the construction of such complexes, their social, economic, and ecological impacts, and the legal-political-institutional environments within which their development could occur. The report emphasizes planning, design, and construction of near-shore complexes located off the Mid-Atlantic coast of the United States. Although the report exemplifies complexes developed for the primary purpose of transportation and secondary purpose of energy and other uses, its contents are applicable to any offshore development. Some synergies among functions are also discussed. (ERA citation 02:020215)
