A seaport is best defined in terms of its function as a place where each-way exchanges between land and sea transport regularly take place. This function cannot usually be achieved in exposed water sites and so it is generally axiomatic that a successful commercial seaport is equipped with harbour facilities that may be natural but more usually artificially enhanced. It has been common to find the virtues of many places proposed for port development or programs of major expansion summed up in descriptions of 'fine natural harbours* such as may be provided by drovmed deep valleys or flooded glaciated valleys. Attractive as such places might appear on maps,it is only recently that their deep and sheltered Tracers have been looked upon as forming a principle factor in the decisions about where to locate major multi-functional ports,or even * simple' terminal facilities for certain bulk commodities.
