Handbook of Marine Mineral Deposits delves into marine mineral exploration and mining, covering both the fields economics and the state of the art of its science. The 1982 Law of the Sea Convention had a chilling effect on the deep-sea mining industry Later in the 1980s, most nations adopted the 370-km exclusive economic zone, which rekindled interest in the industry. Amendments made to the law in 1994 have also improved the outlook since then. India has agreed to abide by the Law of the Sea Convention by setting aside reserves of manganese nodules in the Central Indian Basin for international use that equal those it has claimed for itself.
