AbstractSite selection and site adaptation for construction of port terrains require evaluation of the natural or man-made environment of each specific project. Common to most projects, however, is the need for analysing present and anticipating future operational requirements . Recent developments in vessel design and cargo handling methods have brought about changes not only in navigational criteria for channels and harbor basins, but also in space requirements for shore facilities. In this paper an attempt is made to define some aspects of land area requirements for future port operations.
