    Listed below are some of the advantages and disadvantages of the Oceanic Borders of the United States of America.

    Advantages:

    The access to the ocean on both sides means that the U. S can trade with most countries of the world and so oceans are a source of economic activity. The oceans make the U. S incredibly difficult to invade and also provide security from the threats of other countries. The natural resources on the ocean floor are also invaluable.

    Disadvantages:

    Since it has a big coastline, the U. S has to maintain a large navy for security reasons and is costly. The flooding and hurricanes are a constant threat in some of the coastal areas and the effects of climate change could be felt strongly.
