Ahunui Atoll FP
Wednesday, December 27, 2006
Ahunui Atoll (Ahounoui, Byam Martin, Cockburn)is an uninhabited wooded atoll. The lagoon is in-accessible, but there is a landing place on the NW end of the atoll near some huts and a tank. (SD Pub-126)
This atoll does not have much information posted on the Internet. The Sailing Directions give very little information. The Shuttle Image shows a vegetation area on the western motu that the Landsat image does not show. The Landsat image appears to be washed out (if that can be possible with satellite imagery).
I spent about four hours digitizing the shoreline of this atoll. It was a fairly simple process.
