It is particularly important in restricted areas with high intensity traffic, where the criteria of closest point of approach (CPA) and time to CPA are difficult to apply. This research continues to examine ship domains in Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS). We have analyzed precautionary areas established within TSSs in connection with changed arrangements of vessel traffic. Besides, we have defined ship domains in a precautionary area of a specific TSS, and compared them to domains of vessels proceeding along traffic lanes.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.11.01.10}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Ship Domain, Closest Point of Approach (CPA), Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS), Navigational Safety Assessment, Precautionary Area, Safety Criterion, Safety at Sea, Colregs} }
