I've been researching recent developments in Naval strategies for patrols and combat in littoral regions. I'd like a definition of "e;littoral"e; beyond, "e;the area near the coast."e; One marine biology site quoted water depth of 5 - 10 m, but while the may influence vessel draught it doesn't take into account lots of other issues. Anyone have an opinion or know of a decent source for this type of info?
