This paper reviews differences and overlaps between hydrographic surveying and marine scientific research in the exclusive economic zone (EEZ), including the concept of military surveying. It concludes that recent trends with technology, the utility of hydrographic data and State practice suggest that hydrographic surveying in the EEZ should be under the jurisdiction of the coastal State. Paradoxically arguments for military surveys in the EEZ being outside coastal State jurisdiction appear stronger than those for hydrographic surveying. The paper offers some guidelines related to the conduct of hydrographic surveying in the EEZ. ?? 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
