A part of ocean partially enclosed by land such as islands, archipelagos, or peninsulas.
The term marginal sea commonly has two differing meanings. As an oceanographic term, marginal sea indicates a partially enclosed sea adjacent to or widely open to the open ocean at the surface, but bounded by submarine ridges on the sea floor. As a geopolitical term, marginal sea is equivalent to territorial waters. Defining what naval territory falls under a state's jurisdiction as "marginal sea" is important in determining what maritime resources that state can exploit.
