..., the results may show the dolomitic material to be more extensive. The known distribution of dolomitic materials from drill holes on Pacific atolls is puzzling ( Fig. 5 ). At Funafuti, in the Ellice Islands most of the lower half of the hole was dolomitized ( Cullis, 1904 , pp. 404-05). At Kita-Daito-Jima...

... and satisfactorily exposed.” More than 25 years ago, the well-known report from Bikini Atoll estimated that the zone in which coral is abundant is narrow and that detrital sediment is a major component of the marginal zone of an atoll ( Emery et al, 1954 ). In this report, coral limestone interpreted as reefal...

In the Darwinian model, atoll lagoons are the result of subsidence of a centrally located land mass in which an initial fringing reef grows upward and outward with subsidence to create the ever- widening lagoon of a barrier reef that becomes an atoll with final submergence...
