      Bikini and nearby atolls, Marshall Islands; paleontology: Fossil calcareous algae from Bikini atoll Professional Paper M By: Jesse Harlan Johnson. The historical information within this site, while constantly updated, is drawn largely from the book, FOR THE GOOD OF MANKIND: A History of the People of Bikini and their Islands, Second Edition, published in September of by Jack Niedenthal. This book tells the story of the people of Bikini from their point of view via interviews, and the author's more than two decades of firsthand.

      Bikini and nearby atolls, Marshall Islands; paleontology: Larger Foraminifera and smaller diagnostic Foraminifera from Bikini drill holes Professional Paper O. An atoll (/ ˈ æ t ɒ l, ˈ æ t ɔː l, ˈ æ t oʊ l, ə ˈ t ɒ l, ə ˈ t ɔː l, ə ˈ t oʊ l /), sometimes called a coral atoll, is a ring-shaped coral reef including a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. There may be coral islands or cays on the rim. (p60) The coral of the atoll often sits atop the rim of an extinct seamount or volcano which has eroded or.

      Atolls are ring-shaped reefs that occur in mid-ocean, often in linear island chains or archipelagoes. The most extensive groups of atolls occur in the Pacific Ocean but there are also numerous atolls in the central Indian Ocean (Figure 1). The reef platforms that form atolls are generally characterized by reefs that reach sea level, especially.   Bikini Atoll can be found in the Marshall Islands, a chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls between Hawaii and Southeast Asia. The atoll’s coral reef, seabed, waters, and .

Bikini Atoll (/ ˈ b ɪ k ɪ ˌ n iː / or / b ɪ ˈ k iː n i /; Marshallese: 'Pikinni', [pʲiɡinnʲi], meaning "coconut place"), sometimes known as Eschscholtz Atoll between the s and (see Etymology section below for history and orthography of the endonym), is a coral reef in the Marshall Islands consisting of 23 islands surrounding a square-mile ( km 2) central lagoon.

N early 60 years after the last of 23 nuclear explosions in its land, air and water, Bikini Atoll again looks like the idyllic Pacific paradise it was in — a bracelet of sandy, palm-covered. The 23 white stars of the Bikinian flag represent the islands of Bikini Atoll.

The 3 black stars in the upper right corner represent the three islands vaporized by the Castle Bravo detonation on March 1, The two black stars in the lower right hand corner represent the islands of Ejit and Kili, where the majority of Bikinians in the Marshall Islands reside today.

However, neighboring atolls were significantly less nuclear -- a positive sign after decades of upheaval for the region's former residents. Associated Press Residents of Bikini Atoll arrive at a nearby island after evacuating their homes, Ma Operation Crossroads was a pair of nuclear weapon tests conducted by the United States at Bikini Atoll in mid They were the first nuclear weapon tests since Trinity in Julyand the first detonations of nuclear devices since the atomic bombing of Nagasaki on August 9, The purpose of the tests was to investigate the effect of nuclear weapons on warships.

Bikini Atoll lies in the northern Marshall Islands in the central Pacific. It is km 2 with a perimeter of km. Its central lagoon is up to >30 m deep. There were originally 25 islands on the rim but several of these were destroyed by the Nuclear testing carried out on the Atoll in the s.

Welcome to this historical World Wide Web site for Bikini Atoll. Bikini Atoll is located in the central Pacific and is one of the 29 atolls and 5 single islands that form the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Bikini is perhaps best known for its role in a series of nuclear tests conducted by the United States in the s and s.

After the first tests, the U.S. government continued to use the area around Bikini Atoll and the Marshall Islands for nuclear testing, writes.
