Micronesian stick charts show wave patterns and currents. The shells represent atolls and islands. Using stick charts (also called rebbelibs, medos, and mattangs) ancient mariners successfully navigated thousands of miles of the South Pacific Ocean without compasses, astrolabes, or other mechanical devices by memorizing these constructed diagrams. Each straight stick represents regular currents or waves around the low-lying atolls while the curved sticks depict ocean swells. Micronesian Stick Chart, Walter Edwards for National Geographic; Marshall Islands stick chart, Rebbelib type.
"Conobbi quella troia di mia moglie su uno di questi così, su una di queste "betunueri marini", è stato uno dei giorni più grigi della mia esistenza... Mai mischiare il lavoro di cantiere con quello del marinaio. Tornando a questo RIMORCHIATORE MARINO, beh ci sono troppe cose da dire, ogni aggettivo sarebbe riduttivo e sminuente di fronte alla sua gagliardezza. Elegante, in puro e freddo accaio, sinuoso come una baldracca del porto di Amsterdam, maestoso come un albatros che si libra nel cielo sebbene coperto ancora di pece. P.S. Ah il capitano era un invertito fatto perennemente di allucinogeni, e ha prova a stuprarmi,spero le scarpe di cemento siano state del numero giusto. Or mi concengedo mia moglie ha fatto la focaccia.

The people who see the low lying Marshall Islands home see the impacts of climate change at their front door: more intense storms, higher tides, and surging water levels. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Climate change for these islanders isn’t about modelling future scenarios. Its about taking action now. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Selina Leem was a clarion voice for the Marshall Islands at the COP21 climate talks in Paris, and continues to push for climate action with urgency. •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Source: Skoll.org
Ivy Mike was the first full-scale test of a thermonuclear device. Rather than a bomb in the conventional sense, the device itself encompassed an entire building, and was intended as a proof-of-concept for future thermonuclear-fusion-based weapons. With an explosive yield of 10.4 megatons it was about 650 times more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. The test took place in the South Pacific on the island of Elugelab, which was part of the Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands. Elugelab was completely removed from the face of the earth in the explosion.

Stopped over at the archeological centre to gather some info for an article I am writing. So eerie looking at some of this stuff. I stood in front of this Japanese flag and looked closely at the stitching and all the tiny details not captured in this picture. I couldn’t stop thinking about the hands that made it, the sacrifices made in its name and its journey to here. #wwii
This week we bring you the Marshal Island a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines🌴 ! . . . #tinycountryweek #marshallisland #worldwide
We have officially reached 1K. Thank you everyone for the love and support! Without you, we wouldn't have made it this far with NTA's YouTube channel. Go ahead and subscribe and help build it up. From all of us at NTA. Komol tata.
"Bikini Atoll had been on my list of dream destinations for quite a while. When I saw Aron's post on Instagram about a liveaboard trip to Bikini in the coming year I jumped on the opportunity to go. When you think about a dive trip to Bikini it doesn't get much more remote and logistically complicated. However, once I arrived in Kwajalein, Aron was there to meet everyone and from then on we were all in good hands. The trip was run like a well-oiled machine, the boat was set up to accommodate technical/CCR divers and diver safety was always kept at the forefront of our priorities. I couldn't have asked for much more. I also would be remiss if I didn't mention the amazing crew onboard the Truk Master. From the well-organized dive deck with someone always ready to help with donning gear to the chef making sure there was a vegetarian option available for me at each meal. They were top-notch all around. Oh, and the diving! Conditions were amazing, warm water, great viz and minimal current. I could have easily spent the entire trip exploring the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga and been perfectly satisfied. However, the Prinz Eugen, IJN Nagato, and USS Arkansas were all icing on the cake for me. I highly recommend Aron and The Dirty Dozen Expeditions." - Dallas Don't just take our word for it, read Dallas' full review and many more on our website - link in bio. #thedirtydozenexpeditions #truklagoon#bikiniatoll #wreckdiving #teamdd#blueotwo Photo by @aronarngrimsson

Children everywhere deserve a safe and stable place to live and learn. Our project @rise_up_marshall_islands aims to expand the SDA Laura campus into a boarding school for outer island kids. Ebeye island for example is so overpopulated there are many children that cannot attend school due to a lack of room. #marshallislands#children#ourfuture#sdaschool#sda#sdachurch#riseup#youth
Every season, the captain of Truk Master (our vessel in Truk and Bikini) and dear friend @cridgey and I get a few dives in together sharing some of the Easter eggs found during our explorations that year. Here’s one of my 2019 highlights from Bikini Atoll — giant rice bowls inside the IJN Nagato. www.thedirtydozenexpeditions.com #truklagoon#bikiniatoll#wreckdiving#rebreather . . @thedirtydozenexpeditions @blueotwo @fourthelementdive @hollis_rebreathers @diveshearwater @paralenz @jswatch @the_explorers_club
