The core content of the geography study is man-land relation.The ocean is a very important component of the earth system as a whole.It has been closely connected with the development of human society.Having reviewed a considerable amount of literature concerning man-land relation and marine studies,this paper attempts to study the interaction between human society and the sea on a geographic perspective,namely man-sea relation.Man-sea relation is part and extension of the man-land relation in a broad sense.Studies carried out in this field are of significance to not only the enrichment of the theories of man-land relation,but also marine sustainable development.In the beginning this paper expounds the meaning and characteristics of man-sea relation and regional system of man-sea relation.Then the spatial structure and areal types of the regional system of man-sea relation is discussed.In the end the evolution of the man-sea relation and its mechanism are briefly analyzed in the terms of man’s exploitation of marine resources.
