.... The first well-known offshore drilling for general scientific information was that of the British Royal Society at Funafuti Atoll in 1898 (Halligan, 1904), where a rotary drill operated from the bow of an anchored sailing ship and sampled to a maximum depth of 45 m below the lagoon floor at 30 m. Deep-sea...

The Royal Society of London acted on this suggestion 15 years later—in 1896—by sending the first of three Expeditions to the Atoll of Funafuti in the Ellice Islands (Sollas, David, et al ., 1904 ) ( Figs. 4 , 5 ). In 1897 Agassiz himself...

... are called ‘almost-atolls’, and with further subsidence they will be transformed into true atolls. Darwin realized that his coral-reef theory could be tested by drilling through an atoll to look for underlying volcanic rock. Such drilling was undertaken at Funafuti in the Ellice Islands (now Tuvalu...
