West Pacific Ocean Islands
Scope Notes: This term is used for islands and island groups which could not easily be assigned to adjacent land areas or to island groups such as Australasia, Malay Archipelago and Oceania. Before 1985, many of these islands and island groups were also narrower terms of Pacific Ocean. Before 1971, also search Pacific Islands, Pacific Ocean Islands. Added to Thesaurus in 1985.
