Qi, J.; Xu, C., and Ai, W., 2018. The evaluation of navigation conditions in Zhoushan Qushan port. In: Liu, Z.L. and Mi, C. (eds.), Advances in Sustainable Port and Ocean Engineering. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 83, pp. 465–468. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.

Qushan port is an important port for ore carrier berthing in China in future. At present, there is less research on the navigation safety evaluation of this port, so it is necessary to study the navigation safety evaluation there. In the present paper, the navigation conditions of Qushan port is evaluated by using navigation knowledge and relevant countermeasures are put forward. The research results show that the width of the annex waters can meet the requirements of 400000 DWT ship's navigation, but the water depth condition is limited, and the 400000 DWT ships must use the tide to enter the harbor in order to ensure the ship safety.
