Tuamotu Islands, French Polynesia

Following on from our research in the Society Islands, we continued with reef assessments round the Tuamotu islands. They constitute the largest archipelago in French Polynesia, spanning an area that is similar in size to Western Europe (but with a land area of only about 850 km2), and include 77 of the world’s 425 atolls. We focused on coral assessments of Rangiroa, Aratika, Raraka and Fakarava.
