The Marshall Islands consist of 29 atolls and 5 isolated reef islands in the northwest central Pacific Ocean. The archipelago contains the largest and perhaps oldest atolls in the world based on the findings of deep drilling surveys at Enewetak (formerly called Eniwetok) and Bikini (Figure 1) and the archipelago’s location near the oldest part of the Pacific Plate.
