NOTES:

1.   The designation of a land area encompasses all internal waters, unless otherwise noted.  For HFP and/or IDP purposes, the term “internal waters” is defined as waters landward of the baseline, drawn in accordance with international law.

2.   The designation of a water area (such as the Persian Gulf) includes the territorial seas of those waters, but not the internal waters of the coastal lands.  For example, all waters of the Persian Gulf seaward of the baseline of the coastal states, drawn in accordance with international law, would be included in the Persian Gulf designation.

3.   Unless otherwise specifically indicated, airspace is NOT part of the included area.  When airspace is specifically included, it will normally be that space directly vertically above the approved land or sea area.

4.   This figure reflects all designated areas, which were active within the last ten years.
