Changes in Maritime Traffic of the Port of Jacksonville
This paper falls within the subfield of port geography. Its purpose is to measure relative and absolute change in Jacksonville's maritime traffic from 1974 through 1980. Changes are described in the context of the Northeast Florida/Georgia region, which includes the ports of Jacksonville in Florida and Savannah and Brunswick in Georgia. Interport competition among these regional ports has been increasing, and information concerning throughput trends will become essential for port planning decisions.
