Abstract We give a data structure that allows arbitrary insertions and deletions on a planar point set $\textit{P}$ and supports basic queries on the convex hull of $\textit{P},$ such as membership and tangent-finding. Updates take $\textit{O}(log1+ε\textit{n})$ amori tzed time and queries take $\textit{O}$ (log $\textit{n}$ time each, where $\textit{n}$ is the maximum size of $\textit{P}$ and ε is any fixed positive constant. For some advanced queries such as bridge-finding, both our bounds increase to $\textit{O}(log3/2\textit{n}).$ The only previous fully dynamic solution was by Overmars and van Leeuwen from 1981 and required $\textit{O}(log2\textit{n})$ time per update and $\textit{O}(log$ $\textit{n})$ time per query.
