MORE, Rodrigo Fernandes. Considerations about the recommendations of the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf on the Amazon fan. Rev. bras. polít. int. [online]. 2014, vol.57, n.1, pp.117-142. ISSN 1983-3121.

In 2004, Brazil submitted to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf (CLCS) a Submission for the outer limit of the Brazilian continental shelf for its extension beyond the limits of 200 nautical miles. In 2007, the CLCS presented its recommendations, however it did not recommend four areas proposed by Brazil, the Amazon Fan among them. The objective of this study is to present the main legal and technical aspects of the controversy about the Amazon Fan, in order to evaluate some alternatives for a future submission, new or revised.

Keywords : Amazon Fan; CLCS; continental shelf; foot of slope; outer limit.
