GEOG 101 AMU week 8 forum Austral and Pacific Realms American Military University assistance is available at Domyclass
Choose one of the two topics below for your primary post. Your primary post is due by Wednesday 11:55 PM ET, and your two required replies by Sunday, 11:55 PM ET.
Topic 1. Water World
Maritime boundaries are extremely important in many places in the world, and of course they take on extraordinary importance in the Pacific Realm. Because of the way we define maritime territories, island based nations can have much more maritime territory than land-based territory. For this forum, first explain the difference between territorial waters, exclusive economic zones, and the high seas (you’ll need to a bit of internet research for this). Then, find a place where there is conflict over who these zones belong to (this conflict can be in any realm, not just those areas we discussed this week), and describe the conflict. What do you think is a fair resolution to the conflict you’ve chosen?
Topic 2. Travel Itinerary
Both the Austral Realm and the Pacific Realm offer much fodder for the tourist imagination. Plan an itinerary for a vacation to one or both of these realms. The length of the trip is up to you, but describe at least three destinations that you would visit on your trip and explain why you chose these. And, since this is a geography class, your explanations should include points of geographical interest as well as standard tourist interest (of course, these can overlap).
Be sure that your trip is centered on one of both of these realms, as your textbook defines them. (For example, Japan isn’t included!)
Please consult at least two websites or other resources to plan your itinerary, and list those web addresses at the end of your post.
