Caption: Coral atoll and lagoon. Satellite image of part of the Pacific atoll Nikumaroro, the most southerly and westerly of the Rawaki Islands, Kiribati. North is at top. This is the north-westerly tip of Nikumaroro. The image area is about 2.5 kilometres across. The atoll encloses a central lagoon of shallow water (pale blue, lower right). The breach in the atoll (lower centre) is Tatiman Passage. Surf (white) is seen as waves from the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean (dark blue) break over the coastal coral reef. Sandy beaches line the coast. Thick vegetation (green) covers this uninhabited atoll, formerly called Gardener Atoll. Image taken by the Ikonos satellite on 16 April 2001.
