Marine Geography: Ocean Space and Sense of Place advances the field of marine geography and defines it as a unique subdiscipline of geographic thought. It demonstrates how core theory and perspectives must be tweaked to be effective in approaching geographic challenges such as natural resource management, fisheries, coastal development, marine environmental research and exploration, mobilities and legal issues of boundaries and enforcement, and any topics that include human-nature interactions in this space.

The book provides the geographic theories that must be adjusted and highlights unique spatial characteristics that must be accommodated appropriately to be applied towards issues in marine and coastal systems, e.g., boundary-making, dimensions, cultures of science/technologies, access, social constructions, place vs space, etc. The author effectively lay out ways in which ocean space has been organized by humans, that is, how we have determined boundaries and boundary systems in ocean space.
