An amazing change to the Atolls of the Tuamotus after the Marqueses. The Tuamotus used to be large volcanic islands but the interior of the islands collapsed leaving on the fringing coral, which many times is just at sea level or slightly below. The interior is now just massive lagoons. Fakarava's lagoon for example measures 32 by 15 miles.
